Quote of the day

I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glamorous creature that I could think of. For to have been thought about, born in God’s thoughts, and then made by God, is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing in all thinking.

George MacDonald, Scottish author, poet, and minister
Inspiration to J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and G. K. Chesterton

I teach literature in a Christian high school by day and write inspirational fiction by night. I love to share heart-touching quotes and stories here on my blog. So glad you stopped by!

  1. I had not come across that quote before, Renee. I am not gifted with words, so I appreciate the way George MacDonald expresses my feelings.

    Beautiful words….I see he was an inspiration to C. S. Lewis. C. S. was a atheist who really came to Love the Lord. I have family that I pray for every day …many times that are agnostics. I know they can become found lost sheep!

  3. Oh, and what a quote it is.

    Thank you.

    I will be teaching that to my teenage sons.
