Choose to Live in Wonderment

The Bible teaches that to enter the kingdom of Heaven we must be as children.  What is this gift the child posses? A state of wonder, awe and faith in the unseen.

If we continually study Gods creation, learn about the projects of others, and use our imagination we can awaken the child within.  You don’t need to go on an ocean voyage and visit exotic lands to know the feeling of discovery. It is in our day that lays before us. Continual curiosity propels us forward, putting wind in our sails.  It is the freedom to wear a costume though it is not Halloween. The excitement which comes from researching a new topic, the fun of decorating your home radically different, and faith that our dreams can come true.

We hold the key to experiencing adventure in daily life. Though we may need to consciously plan the art of adventure. Start with being a tourist in your own town during a staycation. Next we can list our dreams and lifetime goals on paper. Wonderment is a mindset which can be learned. Accept that all things are possible, yet I recommend praying that the Lords will be done, as God see’s the whole picture. If we are diligent and give our requests to him we can rest in the peace of God while experiencing the joy of life’s journey.
