May We Never Lose Our Wonder

How glorious of a Father that evokes such wonder.

May We Never Lose Our Wonder
May we never lose our wonder
May we never lose our wonder
Wide eyed and mystified
May we be just like a child
Staring at the beauty of our King

- "Wonder (Spontaneous)"

Our King, in His grace and mercy and beauty and power, has chosen to bestow His overwhelming love on us. His children were broken and wretched, but He called us out of the darkness and into His sweet, welcoming arms through a beautiful and loving Savior. This Truth creates nothing but an overcoming spirit of awe and thankfulness and wonder. May we never lose this wonder.

May we never lose this wonder in the busyness of the day.

May we never lose this wonder in the hardships of the week.

May we never lose this wonder in the distractions of our outward perception.

May we never lose this wonder in the inconveniences, big or small.

May we never lose this wonder in the passage of time.

May we never lose this wonder in the desire to mark off our checklists.

May we never lose this wonder in the excitement of new earthly items.

May we never lose this wonder in the mundane, everyday events.

May we never lose this wonder in the grief of this broken world.

His love and His goodness is completely steadfast, so why is our wonder at His greatness so wavering?

I do not ever want to become unchanged by the Gospel or unaffected by what the Lord has done for me. I want to walk in the graciousness and amazement of His kindness like a young daughter walks in amazement of her dad. I want to have the admiration and astonishment of God's sweet care that I had the first time I understood what He had done for me. I want to be child-like in my adoration of the Father.

He has proven Himself faithful countless times, and He will do it again. He has extended His gracious love to us always even though we are undeserving. He has proven Himself powerful and almighty over and over again. He has blessed us time and time again. His faithfulness, His strength, His creativity will last through the ages, and I will wonder at it all of my days.

I pray that I would not become unmoved by our God because His sacrifice, His character, and His continuous blessings deserve all of my most genuine and overflowing praise and more. I pray for genuine worship and genuine wonder. My God does not deserve half-hearted, unamazed, artificial worship. He deserves all of my fascination, marveling, reverence, and wonder.

Look among the nations! Observe!
Be astonished! Wonder!
Because I am doing something in your days—
You would not believe if you were told.
- Habakkuk 1:5
Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who alone works wonders.- Psalm 72:18
O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have worked wonders, Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness. - Isaiah 25:1

He is wonderful, marvelous, astounding, and faithful. Let us not be distracted by this world. Let us look to Him in awe and wonder and worship.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
