Remember and speak up...

What wonders has God done in your life?  

Let's brainstorm some possibilities that might trigger you to remember some of God's works/wonders in your life.

  • The wonder of your salvation.  What is your salvation story?
  • The wonder of God setting you free. Has God set you free from an area of bondage, addiction, fear, worry, depression?
  • The wonder of a relationship that changed your life. How has God interwoven your life with the life of someone who impacted your life forever?
  • The wonder of His protection.  Have you ever been in a situation where you know that God miraculously spared your life?
  • The wonder of His provision. Do you have a story of God's provision for your needs?
  • The wonder of His healing.  Has God healed your body, or your mind, will, and emotions?
  • The wonder of His empowerment to endure difficulty?  Has God ever supernaturally enabled you to face and get through a difficult time of testing and trial?
  • The wonder of His companionship.  How has God revealed Himself to you as a friend?
Why not take the time to sit down and journal some of the ways God has worked in your life?  

Do your family and friends know your wonder stories?

This week, those of us that live in the U.S.A., will gather with our family and friends and celebrate Thanksgiving Day.  One way we show our gratitude to God is to remember the things He has done in our life, His works and wonders that we have personally experienced, and to meditate on, or think about them .  Another way to show God our gratitude is to talk about His deeds with others. Do your spouse or your children and grandchildren, your siblings, cousins and friends, know your stories of God's work in your life.  Do they know how you came to know Christ?  Do they know of the ways He has miraculously intervened in your life?  Do they know the stories of His daily steadfastness, faithfulness and provision?  As you gather with your loved ones this week, why not give thanks to God by sharing one of your wonder stories?  Maybe you could challenge everyone around the table to do the same?  What a wonderful way to give thanks and to give God the glory and honor He deserves!

  1. I love this wording, Elizabeth: our wonder stories. We each have so many if we'll just take a minute to think about them!
