“Life is an uphill battle. But it’s our choice whether or not we make it up the mountain. We can choose to give up or keep climbing to see the view at the top. The view is almost always worth the climb.”-Alexis Wohler. God put this saying on my heart when I was going through […]
Have you ever been so amazed by God’s wonders and sit in awe of how He made everything around you? What about waking up to a beautiful sunrise or the smell after it rains? The beauty of a rainbow. The beauty of the clouds as dusk falls over the horizon. What about hearing the joyous laughter of children in your neighborhood? Being able to sing God’s praises wherever you may be, with someone beside you or within the quietness of your own heart.
Seeing the flowers start to bloom after a cold winter is often a sight that will bring joy to many people, too. So is the first snowfall when winter finally comes around again. Feeling the shift in the air as the seasons change every year is something to look forward to and smile about. The changing of the leaves and making the world pop with more color is a sight to see as well. Remember all the times as kids where you would run and jump into a big pile of leaves, just for the fun of it?
Remember as a kid how you used to get so excited about it finally being Halloween and then Thanksgiving and finally being Christmas morning? Remember how excited you were to see the costumes at Halloween and the taste of the turkey in your mouth along with the mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving? What about the joy you felt with having your friends and family around you during the holidays? The excitement that you felt when you started putting Christmas lights up and ornaments on the Christmas tree as a kid? Do you still feel that excitement? Those are all wonders given to us by God. We can experience all those joys within our hearts and any time and loom back at the holidays and the seasons with fond memories.
There is something special about the way our dogs and cats react to us being around them. When we come home they are always so happy to see us. They enjoy our presence as much as we enjoy theirs. But if they’re ashamed of something they did, then they cower when they come to us. For they are afraid of what we will do to them after we figure out what they did. Much like we are afraid to come to God after we sin. We are afraid to come to Him about our sins because we think He will be angry at us. He isn’t merrily angry, but He is disappointed at us for sinning.
The wonder of God is visible through so many ways on Earth and not all of them can be explained in words. The wonder of God is something we feel in our hearts. We just know it comes from Him and it puts everything into perspective for us.
