Live in His Wonder

Monday, February 15, 2016

The past few weeks have been... different, to say the least. With my husband miles away pursuing his dream that is nothing less than challenging, we have been in a state of wonder. We wonder what the other is doing, how the other is feeling, what life will be like after the training period, but most all, how great our Savior's works are. I have shared my heart's will to invest in wonder (here) and am grateful for this platform to remind myself, challenge myself, and praise Him for His wondrous works. 

One definition of wonder is "a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable." The definition is itself wondrous. God's plan for us, each of us, is beyond our own capacity. We can live in His plan by longing for Him, trusting in Him, and admiring His wondrous works. 

At some point, and probably more times than we knew we would experience, we have all been a state of painful not knowing. Unhappiness in situations, uncertainty in careers, fear of the "next"... the not knowing can spark anxiety. The trials will not cease. But, neither will the blessings. After almost 10 years of marriage, we have questioned and struggled. We have also seen His plan unfold in unexpected, beautiful ways. We are without doubt that His wondrous works are immeasurable. Whatever your pain or struggle or unknown state, He is always with you. May we seek Him at all times- turning to scripture, to prayer and to our supporters both in time of need and time of praise.

My goal is to live in His wonder. It is easy to wonder in a doubtful manner. His love is forever and so is His wonder. Let us wonder in faith! Let us live in His wonder, full of trust and admiration.

May God's blessing pour down on you.
