Do you remember as a kid being on the playground and choosing teams? I do... I hated it. Anytime we chose teams, I really hated it because I was small as a kid. I almost always got picked last. I wasn’t last, but I was one of the kids that was chose right near the end. “Okay, I’ll take Charles, you take Billy, and we are done...” But something changed in second grade. In second grade I started playing baseball on the mustangs. We were a pretty good little baseball team - in fifth grade we won our city championship tournament - but you know... From then on, getting picked changed. Scott Wallace was typically one of the kids that did the choosing - and he was on my baseball team. From then on, whenever we chose teams, I was always chosen early... That was a new feeling for me... Do you get this - You were chosen. God says, I want you close to me. I want you in my presence. You are mine and you matter to me...
