We’re moving forward in being Wonderstruck by Scripture in The 40-Day Bible Reading Challenge. As I’ve been reading this week, I’ve been wonderstruck by the number of cray, cray, or crazytown stories in the Bible. [Tweet this] I’ve read them before, but every so often I find myself awestruck again. Did you notice any? I was taken back again by a few of these:
In 2 Samuel 20 where Joab gets his pirate on and punctures Amasa with a sword. Guts spill to the ground. Double ew!
Or 2 Samuel 24, where God feels the pain of the terror of the 70,000 people who die from an epidemic and tells the angel, “Enough’s enough! Pull back!”
Or that trickster holy man in 1 Kings 13.
Or Zarephath, the owner of the original Biscuitville (1 Kings 16).
Or that crazy gourd story (2 Kings 4).

What would a flourishing life look like for you? Take a moment and imagine…
Instead of surviving your days, you savor each moment. You pour into the lives of others, and it's a joy, not a chore. And every hour, you are deeply, dazzling aware of God's love and presence.
God intends this flourishing life for you. And it can start today.
