And Mary, in all humility said, "My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God, my Savior."  I often wish I had the private journals of these men and women we read about in Scripture. To be 15 and carrying God's child had to be overwhelming, but Mary understood her place in humanity and rejoiced, when fleeing would have made more sense. She knew God. She knew, as much as a young woman could know, the magnitude of what this birth meant.

She was carrying the Savior. 

It overwhelms me 2,000 years later. When I think about the gift that came into the world, I'm undone. Rereading this Scripture pauses my restless soul to turn in all humility to the One who came to earth.  I pray that my soul magnifies the Lord always and in humble gratitude I bow in thanksgiving to Him for the gift that entered the world as a baby.

{Welcome to WFW!}

There are very few rules, in fact the beauty of this ministry is the creative expression that God reveals Himself through. We marvel at the creativity that participants post! It's a blessing! We encourage the ” post behind the picture,” or the reflections that many of the participants share. We ask that for WFW that participants refrain from using non-biblical. If you've got the time we also encourage you to visit a few of the WFW contributors! It's always a blessing to see the Scripture and story that creatively appear across the screen.

WFW is not about books, authors, artists… it’s about God and HIS WORD ONLY. WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God’s Word and sharing the creative Word!

Please join us as we share the creative gifts God has blessed us with by signing into to the Link below to participate in WFW.

With the heart of an artist and a spirit to live intentionally missional, Lori strives daily to see Him in all that surrounds her. Encouraging women on their daily walk with the Lord is her passion! She has recently stepped out into NEW territory with her husband and some very dedicated disciples to launch a mission business. She would be HONORED if you'd visit Hope Products International where providing HOPE to the world through fair trade and sustainable products. Lori also serves as Leadership Adventure Coordinator, a mid week Bible club for upper elementary students in a local public elementary school. Helping others see the transforming power of Jesus is at the heart of all she does. She LOVES playing graphically and encouraging others through visual arts. It truly inspires her and fills her spirit.

  2. Oh Lori, how lovely! And what a great verse. I've been reading through Luke with my grandkids – separately – the last couple of months, so I read her prayer of joy and submission several times and each time, I was struck by Mary's sweet spirit of willingness to surrender herself and her desires to God, no matter the cost. That is such a conviction and encouragement to me each time and I pray I will someday be able to follow her great example immediately with each new challenge in my life. Thank you for another encouragement in this.
