What is the one thing that captured your wonder yesterday? Was it the fresh air that blew across your face as you stepped out your front door? Was it the quiet of the house as you went to bed? Did you encounter any wonder in your day?
So much of life is our handiwork—our accomplishments—our successes. We often miss the wonder tucked within our schedule and busy lives:
- a child’s smile
- the laughter of a friend
- a teenager who does the dishes without being asked
- a young couple learning to dance
- an unexpected understanding from an unlikely source
- the first show of green on an old rose bush
Psalm 89:5 reminds us that the heavens praise the wonders of the Lord. Why don’t we? The heavens will give way to a new heaven and earth one day, but we will live for all eternity future. Why should the heavens be more proficient at praising the wonder of the Lord than we are?
I have decided that the heavens aren’t going to be the only thing praising the wonders of the Creator. I’m determined to write one wonder each day in my journal. Care to join me? I dare you to say, “Wow God, you rock!” out loud each time you see a wonder this week.
What has captured your wonder today?
In Him together, Susan Gaddis
