21 Wonderstruck Days....

This week's "wonder words" were: 

Silence - on a day when my mind and physical world were crowded with words and noise and the thirst for silence was strong...a reminder to seek the space that allows me to hear God.

Relationship - on a day when a person crossing my path could have been just another appointment comes a reminder to be present, fully present, and let the Holy Spirit do the rest.

Sky - on a day of gray the hope of "alpenglow" and the reminder of the vastness of God's nature and the fullness of his faithfulness. Soul brightening!

Stillness - on a day too busy with stuff I should do, waking to this call  - I cleared the decks and sat with God all.morning.long and the laundry is still not folded.

Dream - on a day in a week when dreams seem to be dashed, a purpose appears and I'm convicted to pray and trust God for the possible in "impossible" - to name and claim my heart's desire.

Prayer - on a day when I could be overwhelmed by so much I want to say to God and so much I want him to say to me and to others - a call to simplicity - three words - Father, Son, Holy Spirit....Speak Through Me.

I'm loving the way the 21 Days of Wonder Challenge is framing my week and focusing my days in unexpected ways. If you'd like to share the Challenge check it out by clicking here: The 21 Day Wonder Challenge with Margaret Feinberg

Cast Away - Castaway


Anchorless, rudderless, tossed.
Discarded and discarding.
Heart empty. Ache. Infilling of calm.

Uncertainty requires clinging to tendrils of faith, and braiding them into a solid strong rope of sustanance. the core is the flame. 

God is Good. God is Sovereign. He reigns over my hearthache. 
He redeems and restores.

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments, 
and his paths beyond tracing out!
Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?
Who has ever given to God , that God should repay him?
For from him
And through him
And to him
Are all things.
To him be the glory forever!

Romans 11:33-36
