Preface

'I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of; for to have been thought about, born in God's thought, and then made by God, is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing in all thinking.', are the words of George MacDonald, a christian and novelist. And he is right. To be born in God's mind, and then made by Him is a glorious thought.
I discovered this heavenly sentence in the year just passed, giggling with joy as the words alighted on my eyes, and warmly nestled in my heart. Are they not beautiful words? For the moments after I read them, I could do none other than sit and grin at the sky. He knows who I am, he knows who I am not. He knows what I love and what I do not. He knows at what I laugh, and at what I weep. He knows me, because he created me. And even that truth does not stand on it's own. He is good. He loves me.


He loves you.



These words and thoughts impressed themselves unforgettably on my heart. God thought about each of us before the beginning of everything. How can one comprehend that?

I was inspired. Deeply. Inspired to think thoughts of my own; deep, full, magnificent, lovely, vast, and majestic, but not to hoard the joy from thinking them. Hence, the blog. The purpose of this blog is to share with you the glorious thoughts that are caught in my mind while I chase after God's beauty.
I hope you enjoy it.

Welcome to This Glorious Thought.
