Have you ever played the game of musical chairs? It was never my favorite game. Every time the music stops, you have to beat somebody to a chair and somebody loses and has to drop out. There is not a chair for every person. Life is like that. Every time someone wins, someone else loses. No one likes to be the odd person out, the person on the outside looking in. And what attracts me so much to the Lord is that God has a chair for everybody. If you end up on the floor, it won’t be because God didn’t have a seat for you. It will be because you decided not to sit in it. God will keep playing the music on and on to give all of us an opportunity to find our place. God chooses you. He loves you. He believes in you, and He wants to share His life with you. God initiates a relationship with you. He sent Jesus so you and I can know Him up close and personal. Jesus lets us know how much we mean to God. Jesus shows us that God is crazy in love with us. It is the coolest thing. God chooses you. God has a place for you. God has a chair waiting for you at His table. You just have to decide that you want to take your seat. That will be the best decision you can make for your life today, tomorrow, and forever.
