For who in the skies above can compare with the LORD?

Who is like the LORD among the heavenly beings?

Psalm 89:6 NIV

Once, on a drive home from church, I noticed gas prices went up again. My first thought was:

God isn’t a gouger; He’s a Giver.

He made everything. And anything we make is comprised of what He’s created. He owns everything; and yet, He saves us and shares with us.

God isn’t greedy, God is generous.

God made my mind too. The reason I get what my husband calls “the thousand word stare” is because I’m a writer. The Lord designed me to be a thinker, tinker, and writer of thoughts. And although I was once belittled for having a busy mind, God intended me to be busy writing words for and about Him.

For 2020, I have chosen beauty as my focus word of the year for my personal journal writing. Photographing creation inspires me to consider the beauty of the Lord. When I contemplate how marvelous He must be to have created such amazing things on earth, it leads me to worship God with my whole heart.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Philippians 4:8 NIV Focusing on Beauty #amwriting wendylmacdonald.com

 

BEAUTY

The good thing about focusing on beauty

is it helps us not get bogged down and blue

about the not so beautiful stuff happening

around us and in the news

The good thing about focusing on beauty

is it reminds us God is still good

for His marvelous works are all around

so His character may be understood.

I’m nosy-to-know if you have a special word for 2020?

One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. Psalm 27:4 NIV
