wonder

Feeling rather uninspired by my life tonight... so I will quote the words of someone else and hope it brings encouragement (if only to me).

"At the end of the day, when I am lying in bed and I know the chances of any of our theology being exacly right are a million to one, I need to know that God has things figured out, that if my math is wrong we are still going to be okay. And wonder is that feeling we get when we let go of our silly answers, our mapped out rules that we want God to follow. I don't think there is any better worship than wonder."

Ooh, I love that idea of wonder being our best worship. LOVE IT! Basically, Abby is the best worshiper in our family. :-)

Sometimes I wish my life was more inspirational to me, as well. I do love that book, and that quote and I take comfort in the fact that most honest people say that they don't find themselves very inspirational.
