The Choice

You didn’t choose to be here,

To come into the world screaming,

To be exposed to the elements seen and unseen.

Being in constant lack, and constant strife,

Avoiding the predators and the dangers while

Also trying to pick yourself up from the pit you’ve fallen into

Again.

No one would willingly choose this.

But He chose.

He chose to be here,

To come into the world screaming,

As a baby, not just as a man,

To be exposed to the elements seen and unseen,

Such as a king searching with the desire to execute,

Being in constant lack, and constant strife,

With no roof over His head or bed of His own,

Marching into danger as all the predators watched,

Avoiding the pit, but climbing the mountain

Again.

If you did have the choice,

You wouldn’t choose the pain,

You wouldn’t choose to be left by your friends,

You wouldn’t choose betrayal,

You wouldn’t choose to die young,

Or by the worst death,

But He chose.

You can choose what’s next…

Ephesians 1
