Wonder

wonder (1) something that causes fascinated astonishment or admiration. (2) the complex emotion aroused by the strange and incomprehensible and especially the awe-inspiring

A lady at work wrapped up a left-over sandwich from a luncheon to bring home to her visiting niece from South Africa. The sandwich was nothing special. It was a simple chicken-salad sandwich from the sandwich shop on the first floor. It’s an average sandwich in a long list of average sandwiches on an average menu we order from on any average day. “This will be an amazing treat for my niece!” she said. “She thinks the food here is wonderful; much different from where she comes from.”  Her excitement over the wrapped up marvel left me feeling like I’ve been missing out. But, how many times have I eaten one of those silly chicken sandwiches? Many! But never once did I feel “amazed.” I walked away I thought to myself, “What happened to me? What happened to my sense of wonder?” I know what you’re thinking; it’s just a chicken sandwich. But it really got me to thinking: having been surrounded by the miraculous and wonderful creation of God every day has it all become ordinary?

From the grandeur of creation to the simplicity of flavor, it is all amazing, all wonderful, all declaring the goodness of God and His desire to bless His children. Each day is a day full of wonder declaring His majesty and glory!  Today, may we be fascinated with every little detail of the life He has given us, giving Him thanks and praise with a greater sense awe and wonder.

Hebrews 12:28 Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,

About athenammorris

Wife, mother, step-mother, and grandmother. I first came to the Lord in 1986. However, I backslid for a few years and rededicated my life to the Lord in 1990. Since then, my road through sanctification has been long and hard; mostly the result of my own rebellion. However in 2011, I finally I completely surrendered to His will and not my own and began to experience spiritual growth. My hope for this blog; people will be encouraged in their daily walk with the Lord. I'm a normal-joe-Christian just like every other Christian; struggling with the flesh, enduring trials, living life all with the intent of glorify and pleasing God. View all posts by athenammorris
