What To Do When You've Lost Your Holy Awe

As followers of Jesus, we are meant to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life God intended for us. We are called to live alert to the wonders all around and within us that expand our desire to know God more.

Yet the focus on the functionality of ministry combined with the increased sense of familiarity can numb us to the marvelous work to which we’ve been called—encouraging people to walk in the fullness of all God has called and created them through Jesus Christ.

Here are a handful of things that can pull us away from living wonderstruck and experiencing the daily splendor of knowing Jesus as we lead:

Maybe you're having one of those days.

You know.

The one where you lost your keys, ran out of gas, juggled screaming kiddos, glances at a pile of bills, and there just aren't enough hours in a day.

#LIVEWONDERSTRUCK by your children

I loved reading your responses to how you’ve been wonderstruck by God. So many responses revolved around your children, nieces, nephews, grandkids, and more.

In Matthew 18, Jesus says we must be like children to enter God’s kingdom.

How My Faith Has Changed Since The Organic God

Over the last year, my friends at Zondervan have been hard at work taking the hardback version of The Organic God and bringing it to paperback. Since the book’s release in 2007, more than 50,000 people have been through The Organic God book and 6-session DVD Bible Study.
