Spontaneous Devotions: “First Choice”

You are My first choice
You are My best thought
You’ve never been second in My heart
You’ve never been an afterthought
I chose you to be Mine before you ever knew My name
I chose you just as you are
I will never give or withhold My love based on your “performance”
I am never disinterested in you-
or the things you have to say
I am never distracted when you call out to me
I am never too busy for you
And I never have more important things to do
You are the object of My affection-
and the desire of My own heart
I love it when you share your dreams and desires
I love it when you tell me all that’s in your heart
I even love it when you sit with Me in silence-
because you have no words left to say
I promise to never disconnect from you
My arms and My heart are always open
I will never turn My face away from yours
I will never push you away
Draw near to Me
Because I’ve already drawn near to you
My banner over you is love
Always love
Only love
Forever, My highest thought for you is love
I chose you for love
I created you for love
My love for you is patient and kind
My love for you is perfect and pure
My love for you is enduring
And because My love endures-
My love is now
You haven’t missed My work in your life
You haven’t missed your moment
I am right here
I am right here with you
I am right here with you in this moment
I see you
I hear you
I am for you
I am with you
Now and forever, I pledge My love to you
I pledge My faithfulness to you
I promise to be careful with your heart
I promise to be so very careful with all the tender places of disappointment and loss
I will never betray your trust
I am yours and you are Mine
You are My first choice
And I chose you for love

He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love. – Song of Solomon 2:4

I am my Beloved’s and his desire is for me. – Song of Solomon 7:10

Artwork by Aeron Brown. Spontaneous devotions are just that – a spontaneous collaborative expression of worship. I read scripture and/or some devotional thoughts, then pray into those those thoughts while Aeron draws. For others click here.

  1. So. so Beautiful and so so true, thankyou for sharing your heart, encouraged God spoke to you while you were away. So wonderful to know its not about performance – my course was talking about do we bring thing to God in the Good room of our hearts or do we feel comfortable to have him round the kitchen table. Thankyou for a Amazing Devotion and these verses I love.
