Worth Saying

I realized this morning that I have not added a new post since April. While a lot has happened in the past 3 ½ months, none of it has compelled me to write a blog. I’m also trying to practice Proverbs 17:27 more in my life – “Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.” I am breaking the silence today because I finally have something worth saying.

Over the past week I have been reading through the Psalms and Psalm 96 really stood out to me. The entire psalm is a call for abundant praise for the Lord throughout all the earth. I decided to write down the attributes of God I came across as I continued reading. In just a few short chapters I had written nearly 50 attributes. This list is DEFINITELY not comprehensive, but as you read the following, take a few seconds to really think about each characteristic and what it says about who God is.
