9.5.19 – “Marvel”

This morning, there is only one word that can describe where my heart is…

…the word is “marvel.”

This morning as I wrote in my journal, I was suddenly overwhelmed, I think I wondered what was happening and I just heard the word “marvel” and so that’s what I did.

I am simply in this place of sitting, and marveling at Him, and I don’t want to move from it.

A state of being in complete amazement, awe, and wonder at what I see the Lord doing in my life, and in the lives around me. It often makes me shake my head in complete astonishment. “Am I really experiencing this life, Lord? This is real.”

The Lord is becoming more and more real to me, things are coming to life in my life, and sometimes I can’t believe what I’m seeing, what I’m hearing, what I’m experiencing.

I’m filled with wonder. So simple, and yet so profound. I am marveling at our marvelous God. ✨
