Here’s a bit more from Dangerous Wonder by Mike Yaconnelli (page 32):
It is time to find the place where dangerous wonder of faith can be discovered—a place landscaped by risky curiosity, wild abandon, daring playfulness, quiet listening, irresponsible passion, happy terror and naïve grace.
In a day when most of us are tired, worn-out, thirsty, and starving for life and joy and peace, maybe it is time to become a child again. Maybe it is time to quit college and take a year off to go to the mission filed, or give up a secure job and go back to school, or leave the corporation because the work is killing our souls, or give up the possessions that are possessing us.
Maybe it is time to live this dangerous wonder of faith, take our shoes off, roll up our sleeves, and have “such a romp as no one has ever seen.” Maybe it’s time to lay in the snow once again.”
Isn’t it amazing how many things in this life can lull us into spiritual slumber when God wants to run wild and free with us through whatever life hurls at us? Don’t fall for any of them. Take a run with him through the meadow today and find out what it really means to be alive!
