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" 
- song by Bethel Music, called Wonder 

I was reminded of the glorious views we enjoy every (clear) day! A guest speaker was recently sharing a story at my church: He is from the south and in a college geography class he chose to study Mount Rainier. During that time he came to love it's beauty and learned every detail you could possibly know about it. After college he finally planned a road trip to visit the mountain for the first time. He shared that at a certain point coming down I5 the distance beheld the mountain in all its majesty... he could hardly contain his heart as it beat against the walls of his chest. Eventually making it all the way to Paradise Point state park at the base of Mt. Rainier, he emerged from his vehicle and proceeded to weep! You see it wasn't until that very moment that he realized the undeniable truth: he knew all about this mountain, but only when he gazed upon the beauty first hand did he actually know the mountain.

It's the same with our Mighty God... we can think we know all about him... the facts, the bible, the law, the words of others, BUT not until you personally experience the living God of the universe will you really KNOW HIM!

A big thank you to Louie Giglio for sharing his story with us! He ended stating that we better not take for granted the amazing reminder of God's greatness! So friends, lets not lose our wonder!
