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 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
In a sneak peak of Wonderstruck, I read:
God extends endless invitations to encounter him, yet too
often we sleep straight through. Unconscious of the life God
wants for us, we slumber in the presence of the sacred and
snore in the company of the divine. We remain asleep while
God roosts in our midst. Inactive and inert, we become spiritual
sleepyheads who clamor for the snooze button rather than climb
out of bed. In our dormant states, we miss the opportunities to
experience his many gifts and to know the Giver more fully.
The wonder of God is that moment of spiritual awakening
that makes us curious to know God more.
Thanksgiving was a few days ago. The Holidays have begun. My prayer this year is that the Holidays will be Holy Days--that I will be awake to the wonder of God, alert to His invitations and ready to put His Word into practice.
