We all need some "wonder" in our daily experience with God. We are all looking for a fresh newness in our pursuit of God, and this is where Jarrid has given us a great gift. After spending time in the pages of Wondrous Pursuit, I leave with a sense of freshness, awe, and knowing, in the deepest parts of my soul, how wondrous the pursuit of God truly is. This is such a fresh word to those in dry places and to bring hope to the work of Jesus in our lives daily. Thank you, Jarrid!
--Josh Hawk, pastor, The Move Church (Nashville, TN)
Our souls were made to pursue and be pursued by God. This isn't a one-time thing or something we move on from. It is a daily discipline of spending time with Jesus. They say it takes 30 days to build a habit, and Jarrid is giving you an incredible tool to help you build a habit of pursuing God in response to his pursuit of you.
--Stephen Miller, author of Liberating King and Worship Leaders, We Are Not Rock Stars
Jarrid invites us into a journey of not just more information about God but a wondrous pursuit of the heart of God that brings transformation. Wondrous Pursuit is a devotional that will allow you to discover God's love and be changed by it.

Faith should be a buoyant force that lifts us into the stratosphere, but it is often a millstone that sinks us to the depths. Jarrid Wilson reminds us that faith is easier than we assume, that grace is freer than we believe, and that God is more majestic than we know. If you're worn out from striving for God's affection, then Wondrous Pursuit is for you. It will liberate you with this stunning truth: When you decide to chase after the Almighty, you will discover that you are already home.
--Jonathan Merritt, contributing writer for The Atlantic; author of Jesus is Better Than You Imagined
There is no more wondrous pursuit than the life that God has for you. Jarrid Wilson knows that and has been on that pursuit. This devotional will be an encouragement and guide from an experienced traveler. I could not be more excited for all who will go on this journey.
--Chuck Booher, senior pastor, Crossroads Christian Church (Corona, CA)

Hopefully all of us have people in our lives whom we experience as a breath of fresh air. For me, Jarrid Wilson is such a person. Jarrid is a young leader who is wise, generous, humble and kind beyond his years. Beneath his handsome exterior lies a childlike, old soul, in the best sense of the word. He is keenly in touch with the human condition. He knows, and cares deeply, that people are lonely, disconnected and much afraid, and is not afraid to move into those spaces with presence and encouragement. And yet Jarrid is no cynic. More than just about anyone else I know, he is a young man filled with wonder: wonder at the image of God in every person, and wonder at the grandeur and grace of God Himself. In this approachable little book, Jarrid invites us to share in that experience of wonder. Pick it up. Commit to reading it over a period of time. I think you'll be glad that you did.
