One of the most wonderful things about the Christmas story is that Jesus came to earth for EACH ONE OF US. He loves us so much more than we can ever imagine; He knows the number of hairs on our heads ….
He knows exactly what EVERYDAY things will fill up our hearts in BIG ways and remind us of his love for us.
Margaret Feinberg has a new book and 7-session DVD Bible study called Wonderstruck: Awaken to the Nearness of God which releases Christmas Day. (She’s offering some crazy promos right now with up to $300 of free stuff. I’ve seen the book for as low as $7.95 on Barnes & Noble!).
Her book shows us how to be more aware of God’s special-on-purpose-surprises.
This is our personal invitation to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life – turn your prayer life upside down, stir our desire to live more abundantly, and take our relationships with others to the next level next year.
Margaret recently posted a great warning on her site that those who have read Wonderstruck have experienced the following symptoms:
-An inability to stop smiling
-An uncontainable desire to pray
-A loss of interest in judging others
-A quiet, unshakable confidence in God
-A renewed ability to see the wonders of God all around
These would make for some adventurous New Year’s goals — and we could keep our chocolate!!
God goes to great lengths to show us how deep His LOVE is for us.
God wants to bless our socks off in ways that he can.
There are times, I walk -around-with-an-all-day-smile at his love for me! Once, I wanted a small, nice wooden box to place some special scriptures in. I didn’t really have the money to buy one. A few weeks later, I stopped into a second-hand store, and there it was — a small cedar box, exactly what I had been thinking about. Not only this, but there was also a small version of a picture that I had been admiring for awhile. I knew immediately they were for me!
I’ve sat in wonder at sky painted in colors that catch my breathe, and I’ve stared at the wonder of leaves that paint a wondrous picture of colors. I’ve ran into old friends I prayed for the courage to call, and been amazed at how God opened doors I couldn’t knock down. Small, personal, and specific made me feel loved, known and adored in a HUGE way.
He does it for all of us, not just me.
So, how has he “awed” you and shown you wonders of his love for you?
