Wonderstruck!

My friend, Margaret Feinberg, has a new book and 7-session Bible Study called Wonderstruck: Awaken to the Nearness of God  (releasing Christmas Day)a personal invitation for you to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life.

Wonderstruck [www.margaretfeinberg.com/wonderstruck] will help you:

  • Recognize the presence of God in the midst of your routine
  • Unearth extraordinary moments on ordinary days
  • Develop a renewed passion for God
  • Identify what’s holding you back in prayer
  • Discover joy in knowing you’re wildly loved 

This theme of Margaret’s makes me think of where I’ve been “wonderstruck” and a couple places come to mind for me:

In the love of our family…
In the transformation of humans from crabby sinners into loving others…
In the compassion I see in my students for the needy of this world…
In the eloquence of some of my favorite writers …
In the glories of the ocean’s roar when we are on beaches…
In the vastness of diversity in humans we’ve been able to see in our travels around the world…

How about you?

    I read three chapters of Wonderstruck this weekend. I found myself nodding again and again.

    I said it in my own blog post this morning, but I’ll say it here, too: Her book is a clarion, an artful call to live alert, and to attend to the moments and the beauty right here and now. It’s a game-changer, to live a Wonderstruck life.

    George Bailey says “it’s a wonderful life.” I say, “It’s a wonderstruck life.”

    I find it telling that this thread, about a book about what we can see, know and experience of God’s wonder all around us has generated one, now two, comments all day long while the endless debate about what hell is/may be/certainly isn’t has generated 139 in the same amount of time. What does that say about us? Why is that conversation so compelling, and this one not?

    I have a few good friends who have run a blog for several years devoted to the idea of “wonder” as experienced primarily in General Revelation. It’s a very engaging site (rednow.com). I feel, for the non-Christian world, this post is much more engaging than Christians debating the details of the afterlife.

    Steve: sounds like a fun blog to be a part of. I bet they have many riveting discussions on rednow.com!

    Thank you so much for the review, Scot! Blessings to you this Tuesday!

    Steve,
    I think you’re right about what people are most interested in isn’t always the most encouraging…but alas, that means we must be all the more intentional about heralding that call to experience and know God more…to truly #livewonderstruck.
