Today's Prompt: Fascinating
What do you find fascinating?
Watching the snow fall and cover the ground?
Seeing flames dancing in a fireplace?
The birds splashing in a birdbath?
Watching your pet play?
A new boyfriend?
When we find something fascinating, it commands our attention. We can gaze upon it for minutes to hours at a time. Some people are fascinated by YouTube videos and Facebook. I can get lost on Pinterest for hours. Time spent with our loved ones can consume our minds. We go over how they looked, what they said, and what they were doing. When babies are born, we spend hours just looking at them. Even old lovers will spend minutes gazing into each other's eyes, still fascinated by the love they see.
One of the definitions of fascinate is to be held spellbound by an irresistible power. There is no more irresistible power than our Lord! We read in His Word what he has said and what He has done.
One place in the Word gives a perfect description of God. It is found in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 and describes love. We know from 1 John 4:8 that God is love. Love is not only something He does, it is who He is. Set aside some time each day to be fascinated with God.
1 John 4:8 also says we can love because He first loved us. When we choose to love, we become fascinating to our Father and those around us. Stories of people who choose to love are so fascinating that the news will report them! That is the light shining through us to a lost and weary world.
I encourage you to be fascinating…CHOOSE LOVE!

Great post, what we should focus on being fascinated with. Come get lost on my Pinterest boards.
I have never thought about God as fascinating. He sure is. The more I know about him, the more I realize I don’t know enough. He has layers that I will never uncover. I’ll die trying. Fascinating indeed.
Love never fails!
I love how you tied in fascinating with God’s love – I don’t think I’ve ever thought about it that way before!
Oh, I like that idea that we can become someone that fascinates others by choosing to show godly love. Good post!
