Often when God answers a prayer for wonder, the tone and tenacity with which we live our lives changes. Holiness beckons. Divine expectation flourishes. Hope returns. Love abounds. In response, we awaken, toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life God intended for us. We live alert to the wonders all around us and within us that expand our desire to know God more.
Will you pray for wonder? Right now, ask God to awaken your ability to see and savor his sweet presence and recognize his divine handiwork.
And as you pray, may you be wonderstruck. With each passing day, may you discover another facet of God's character, feel the soft pinch of his presence, and step back in astonishment of the one who holds everything together. Along the way, I trust you'll experience God.
When you lay hold of him, may you never let go.
