While talking to a friend not to long ago (a new pastor’s wife), I realized that she had lost the “wonder of it all”. She was bogged down with the cares of the church and people that she felt like had not treated her, her husband (the pastor) and the saints of God right. After trying to encourage her I began to think about it and how we can allow such things to overwhelm us if we are not careful. I guess this would be especially for my pastor wife friends, however, good for everyone. 🙂 Don’t lose the “WONDER OF IT ALL”. Our relationship with God is so important. We cannot let it go. Our everyday devotions are so important. We cannot let them go. Our time reading HIS word is so important. We cannot let it go. NOTHING should be allowed to come in between our relationship with the Lord. Well meaning people cannot take that away from us or we lose “the wonder of it all”. Jesus said that he came to give life and that more abundantly. And yes, that still means for us too. Not just for the people we are trying to reach and who are in our congregations. The best thing that you can do for the people you are trying to help is keep your spirit fresh and prayed up. I still get thrilled with Jesus! I keep falling in Love with Him. He’s the best thing that ever happened to me. When I go to church I still love lifting my hands and giving Him praise. I love to dance before my Lord. He is the “wonder of it all”. If I lose that, I have lost everything. Keep the faith, ladies! Keep believing! God can do anything! He can take care of any situation! The next time you enter into your church, enter with the intention of receiving a blessing. Keep the “wonder of it all” alive and well in your life. Keep Jesus your very best friend!
The Wonder of It All!
Who can compare? Who could replace?
I’m overwhelmed by who you are. I can never be the same.
I lift my eyes to meet your gaze. Oh how you take my breath away.
I can never be the same beloved friend.
I bow down. Adore your name.
I cry out worthy, worthy.
You are God.
There is none beside you.
I have been captured. I have been captured.
You’re the wonder of it all.
You’re the wonder of it all.

Thank God for a safe trip to Spokane and back. Thank you to those who whispered a prayer for us and Nila (see previous post) and the family.
I will be back up and running by Monday in the blogging world, the Lord willing. I hope you all have a blessed Sunday! 🙂
