A Unique Opportunity to Live Wonderstruck

Recently I was given the unique opportunity to preview a book written by my new friend, Margaret Feinberg. Over the next three Tuesdays I will be introducing you to this book. Margaret has a new book and 7-session Bible Study called Wonderstruck: Awaken to the Nearness of God (releasing Christmas Day)—which is a personal invitation for you to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life. Wonderstruck will help you:

  • Recognize the presence of God in the midst of your routine
  • Unearth extraordinary moments on ordinary days
  • Develop a renewed passion for God
  • Identify what’s holding you back in prayer
  • Discover joy in knowing you’re wildly loved

This week I want to share where I have seen the wonder of God in my own life. Next week I will share some questions and answers from the author herself and then the following week I will talk about the preview. Then two weeks later I will have a post on my thoughts from the whole book giving me about a week to read it after it comes out.

So how have I experienced the wonder of God in my own life?

A few years back I was praying and thinking about whether I was supposed to be a missionary with Greater Europe Mission and I spent some time looking back at how I was prepared for a position just like this. I was truly amazed  and filled with wonder of how much went into getting me to that point. God showed me that He had been preparing me for this for a long time and I wanted to show you all of the things that amazed me.

Took German after school in Middle School and then 3 years in high school.

I moved to Maryland after college for a job.

Got involved in a young adult Bible study in Maryland.

Almost died twice which allowed me to see God had a plan for me.

Because of health issues I wanted to lose weight and set a goal of 150 lbs lost and to reward myself a trip to Germany with friends.

On the Germany trip I went to a small town called Kandern.

Leading the young adult Bible study led me to search for missions trips where I “randomly” stumbled on a long-term job in that small town that I visited.

Looking at those things, I can’t help but be in awe of an amazing God. His work is wonderful and I have been wonderstruck.

So where have you seen the wonder of God in your life?

  1. I’m also in wonder of where God has taken you–not many can say they’ve been to Maryland or Germany, let alone move there! Blessings to you this day!
