When did you last wander into wonder?

When was the last time you thanked God?

And I’m not talking about a token prayer before a meal.

I mean, really thanked him… Praised him. Revered him. Worshipped him?

I was driving to work this morning and realised it had been quite some time for me.

I’ve been so caught up in my own thoughts lately. My personal, self-focused worries and concerns.

Even when I’ve been studying the Bible (for college) I’ve been pretty forgetful about adopting a stance of worship, awe and reverence.

So I turned up my Bethel CD and asked God to cultivate a heart of worship in me.

I asked him to help me praise him again. Fix my eyes on him. Fall in love once more.

When I make it all about me I keep running in circles.

But when God comes into view – and when I choose to dwell on his amazing attributes – my view of everything else shifts radically.

I focus on glorifying him in my work, my relationships, my family.

I become less insecure and desperate for approval.

And I find peace as I surrender all to him. His agenda. His plans for me. His sovereignty.

What a relief to wander into wonder once more!
