Product Description

Just like you, Margaret Feinberg longs to live in such a way that makes her feel fully alive. She suspects she's not the only one whose sense of splendor and delight has faded with the demands of modern living. What do we do when holy awe is replaced by unholy indifference? When hope is diminished to a manageable emotion? When love becomes a fleeting expression in short supply?
In Wonderstruck, Margaret invites you to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life. Learn to unearth the extraordinary moments in every day life, recognize the presence of God in the midst of your routine, and discover peace in knowing you're wildly loved. You'll find it is possible to regain the missing spark of mystery in the day-to-day. Winsome yet compelling, whimsical yet profound, the stories from Wonderstruck will inspire you to fall in love anew with God.

Publisher's Description

Let’s be honest: it’s far too easy to go through day-to-day life without a sense of the mystery, the marvel, or the awe of God’s presence. Have you ever felt your relationship with God isn’t as vibrant as you want it to be? Have you ever felt like God seemed far away—even in the midst of devotions, prayer, and church?

 

You’re not alone.

 

We Were Created for Wonder

You were created and designed to experience wonder. Woven into the fabric of our humanity is an innate ability and desire for the wonder of God. It’s felt in the moments when you watch the sun melt behind the horizon, when you reach out to cradle a baby and smell the sweet scent of new life, when you can’t help but smile as you witness two wrinkled souls renew their vows to each other. Such moments remind us we were made for something more than deadlines and debt, carpools and coffee breaks. Yet despite such wondrous moments, we can still find ourselves going through the motions of faith.

 

Whether you’re:

 

A long time follower of Jesus or still figuring Him out

Unemployed, overly-employed, or an entrepreneur

A creator, innovator, or conformist

Grumpy, ebullient, grey-haired or bed-head

An average Joe or have-a-gym-membership-but-never-go

A superhero (of any era), supermom, superdad, super grand, super great grand, or don’t feel particularly super at all

 

No matter who you are or where you’ve been—if you’ve lived a life where you’ve seen it all, done it all, or feel like you’re past it all—God still longs to take your breath away.

 

Isaiah 29:4 records God’s desire for you: "Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder."

 

Do you see it?

 

God is busting at the seams to display His glory, power, and might in your life. And He wants to give you the greatest gift of all—Himself.

 

Yet why do we pass by the wonder of God unaware?
