Need HELP installing chandelier - WIRES [PHOTOS]

I have 4 recessed lights that I want to turn into 4 small flush chandeliers. After turning off the power, I removed one of the recessed lights, but decided that I will be mounting a bracket on the can of the light to hold the new light. Only 2 wires, black and white, came from the recessed light. My chandelier has 3, black, white and ground. I looked inside of the metal ceiling box and saw a ground wire although one didnt feed to the recessed light. When you look at the photo, you can see the wires first mount to the recessed light housing and then goes to the bulb. How do I safely install this chandelier with the ground wire? I don't want to not use it.
