I’m not sure If you know this or not, but The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are the Great Pyramid of Giza, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Temple of Artemis, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, Colossus of Rhodes, and the Lighthouse of Alexandria. These Wonders are places in this world that have been labeled places you MUST SEE before you leave this earth.
Of the original Seven Wonders of the World, only the Great Pyramids remain. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Colossus of Rhodes have all faded to dust and memory. Now they have what is called the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Then there is what’s called the Eighth Wonder of the World. It is an unofficial title sometimes given to those new buildings, structures, projects, or even designs that are deemed to be comparable to the seven Wonders of the World.
Well what makes a wonder a wonder? I wanted to know.
At the simplest level, A wonder is something that gives a sense of awe. It’s A Must See!! It should be impressive, and upon viewing should make us take a step back and say, “Wow.”
Here is a basic requirement list to becoming a WONDER:
Age or Durability
Fame or Iconicity
Je ne sais quoi- that special quality that is hard to describe.
I believe that out of all the searching of the Great Wonders of the World, I believe the Greatest discovery one can make is FINDING ONE’S SELF!!
Don’t leave this earth without finding the Eighth Wonder of the World, YOU!!
You can visit and leave the Seven Wonders of the World in awe and amazed, but when you DISCOVER your gifts, talents, and abilities, you will be “Wowed” forever.
Repeat after me, I am the Eighth Wonder of the World!! Let me spend the rest of my days discovering me.
When you begin to discover the Artistry that went into creating you, how BIG you are in God’s eyes, the technical excellence it took to mold an original like you, your staying power and durability, you are going to be Wowed!!
When you see how iconic you are and will be, and to see how authentic you are in context to what you come from and have been through, your own mind will be blown away.
Amazed you will be to find out just how much of an original masterpiece you really are. You are the center of attraction because you are the apple of God’s eye.
It’s not pride or arrogance but you just have that, “Je ne sais quoi, that special unexplained something.”
It’s one thing for people to see it and say it, but it’s another for you to discover it and know it for yourself, “I am the Eighth Wonder of the World.”
God broke the mold when he made you. You know it because you took the time to Discover you!!
