God of Wonder

Here is an excerpt from the first chapter of my new release, "The Signature of God":

"God tells us who He is in countless ways. Sometimes He chooses to do this through small, simple wonders in the natural world, objects we may have seen hundreds of times before but overlooked. Other times, He grabs our attention in bigger ways, and we may wonder how we haven’t noticed Him there all along. I believe God has always revealed His love for us in the beauty and seeming simplicity of nature and that these things communicate significant truths about His character.

As a little girl, I listened to my grandmother tell me stories about God’s creation, stories that pointed directly to Him and particularly to Christ and the significance of the Cross. These stories opened my eyes, and I began to look at the natural world differently, seeing Him everywhere. To this day, I continue to be amazed that God created the natural order in a way that provokes such a sense of wonder and awe."

God of Wonder

God of wonder, a child’s pure delight
You are all around, surrounding our sight

You are there for everyone to see
You make it simple, easy to believe

Little children run to Your bright beacon of light
They see all Your power and all Your might

Tiny babes are always protected and safe
All their pure souls are Yours to finally take

Built-in stories and metaphors are Your design
Plain, uncomplicated to understand and find

Little ones You love to watch dance and play
They hear Your words, know what You say

Your love is always there to shine
Having displayed Your character into your intricate design

Dark nights full of hopes on twinkling bright stars
Where You hold our magical dreams both near and far

You know our every desire and all our wishes
You hear our heartfelt prayers and give us secret butterfly kisses

All of this is part of Your mammoth eternal scheme and plan
Our faith and trust remains forever held in Your loving hands

"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'” Matthew 19:14
