What to Do When Your Faith Feels Stale

The dictionary defines wonder as being filled with “admiration, amazement, or awe; marvel."

In so many ways, those are the fruits of life with God. We are created to live in such a way that our lives are acts of worship where we express our adoration, affection, and appreciation of God at every turn. The presence of God and His work in our world should leave us awestruck.

Now let me be clear: experiencing the wonder of God isn’t about landing a crazy story to tell our friends or experiencing pimply goose bumps.

The wonder awakens us to dive even deeper in our relationship with God.

That’s why I offer the following definition:

The Wonder of God: A moment of spiritual awakening that makes us curious to know God more.

When Your Faith Feels Stale

The wonder of God stirs our spiritual longings and makes us hungry for God in ways that often lead us into moments of transformation. Our eyes open. Our ears hear. Our hearts soften in the presence of God. Our wills more readily yield. Our worship becomes more honest and heartfelt. Our prayers become more vibrant.

Hope blossoms. Faith grows. Love abounds. [Tweet this.]

Will you join me right now in praying for wonder? Offering a prayer for God to lavish you in pixie dust?

Stop. Drop. Pray.

Ask God to unleash His wonder in your life like you’ve never experienced it before.

Now live today expectant for how God is going to answer.

  1. Would love to get this for my wife. We both have read Captivating and Wild At Heart, Love and War, this would be a great prize to win !!!

  2. I would love to have a copy of Staci Eldredge’s new book, “Becoming myself, embracing God’s dream of you”……I’ve read a few reviews already and it sounds amazing and appropriate for where I am right now in my life & my walk with the Lord. My husband of 30 years recently passed away and it’s like starting a whole new life, not the one that I had hoped for.

  3. Hello there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template
    or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!
