Message Behind the Lyrics: May We Never Lose Our Wonder

Master George

If you’ve ever spent some time around young children, it doesn’t take much time to recognize that the smallest things excite and fascinate them. An all time favorite game for young ones is peekaboo! I have never seen a child not fascinated by this game. No matter how many times you hide and reappear they are just as shocked and laughing hysterically as if it was the first time! It’s such an innocent experience.

Now try doing that with an adult- or even anyone over the age of 4. Most will look at you and you can read “are you insulting my intelligence” all over their face. And if you do get one nice enough to indulge you in a game of peekaboo the game dies pretty quickly. They have outgrown the excitement that comes with the anticipation of each reappearance.

Unfortunately, that’s how we often treat God. We feel like we have outgrown His wonders. We live as if there is nothing else God can do that can excite us. We are no longer fascinated by the little things that he does to make us smile. We no longer stare wide eyed at the evening sky or the fish in the sea. We no longer anticipate the next time He appears because we feel as if we’ve seen it before.

May we never lose our wonder
May we never lose our wonder
Wide eyed and mystified
May we be just like a child
Staring at the beauty of our King

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:2).

God wants us to remain childlike. We should constantly be in awe of our beautiful King and loving Father. Don’t let the pride from experiencing life rob you of your innocence in God. Everything He does should fascinate us as if it was our first game of peekaboo all over again.

May we never lose our wonder.

    I love this song and I love the way you illustrate this point. It is true that I spend more time trying to figure out problems on my own than I do praying and trusting that God will show up. Thank you for this!

    How easily we can forget the wonder of God. But it’s so beautiful to come back to him and rediscover his wonder and glory!
