Do You Ever Wonder?

flower“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
– William Blake,
Auguries of Innocence

Wonder.
The hallmark of childhood.
The antagonist of reason.
The antidote to cynicism.
The root of all worship.
The missing element in much of modern American Christianity.

In a world that can be explained by science,
Reasoned by logic,
Deduced by equation,
Rationalized by philosophy,

It’s time for us to return…to wonder.

At God.
At His creation.
At its splendor.

Wonder.

At the intricacies of a butterfly’s wing,

and the earthy dampness after a gentle summer rain.

At the sacred majesty of musical intonation and harmony,

and the incomprehensible vastness of the outer universe.

At the hidden splendor of some of earth’s most majestic secrets,

the indescribable minutia of diverse detail in each snowflake,

the breath-taking seascape of an oceanic sunset,

and the way an oak grows from the smallest of seeds to the strongest of trees.

Friends, we live in a world full of wonder. 

Awe.
Splendor.
Nature breathing worship to its Creator, and bidding us to do the same.

Do you ever wonder?

I do.

“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.” Romans 1:25
