The late great George Beverly Shea did. He penned the words, “The Wonder of it All” and sang them with great gusto over and over again! His wonderment was to think about how God loved Him. Have you ever gazed in wonderment about God’s love like this?

I hate to admit that all to often I find myself on the flip side of Bev’s coin. Not wondering about the miraculous offering of Jesus. Or, a sunset, a river, a tree but always wondering why someone did this or that. Or, said this or that? I start to doubt and then I win the jackpot of unbelief. Bev’ antidote for the cure of doubt was to formulate words of encouragement and beauty. He writes:

“There’s the wonder of spring time and harvest
The sky, the stars, the sun
But the wonder of wonders that thrills my soul
Is the wonder that’s only begun
The wonder of it all
The wonder of it all
Just to think that God loves me…”

What thrills my soul? Many things really. But, one wonderment is when I see the hand of God as He connects little pieces of a wonder that I have into a beautiful work of art thought the hands of a number of people to send me my answer. It’s like a love letter. It surely thrills my soul and I sing along with George Beverley Shea, just to think that God loves me. What thrills your soul?
