I’m linking up today at Gypsy Mama for Five-Minute Friday, writing for 5 minutes off-the-cuff about the assigned topic.
(Sounds like the sort of thing an English teacher would like, doesn’t it?)
Today’s prompt: Wonder
Wonderful is a word we throw around a lot: wonderful meal, wonderful day, wonderful life.
What it really means is wonder full, full of wonders.
So I can say, God, You are wonderful, full of wonders, and really mean it.
Full of wonders. Full of miracles. Full of strength.
Full of everything I am not, full of thoughts that are not mine.
In Him is fullness of joy.
His wonders never cease;
they spill over the rim of His presence, splashing me with awe,
His complexity makes me wonder at Him,
wonder at myself
and my smallness,
makes me wonder why I would ever presume to know more than He does.
I wonder why I don’t instantly, confidently trust Him.
Lord, open my eyes to Your wonder.
Stop. Time’s up.
Be blessed today.
