I have decided to participate in Gypsy Mama’s five minute Friday. A writing prompt is given and you write for five minutes, no corrections, no over-thinking. This weeks prompt: Wonder
Wonder: I look up the stars and I wonder at you creation.
I see the vast and glorious space and wonder at you wisdom, might, and grace.
I taste the sweet fruits and wonder that you gave me the sense of taste to enjoy your creation.
I see all the abundance and wonder at your provision.
I see the depths of my heart and wonder that you love me still.
In spite of all you have shown me you are and all you can do, I look at my circumstances and wonder.
I wonder when you will intervene.
I wonder when you will heal broken hearts.
I wonder do you hear my cries.
I wonder if you will bring lost souls to your abiding love and replace the depravity with your love and grace.
I wonder not just when you will rescue and redeem, but I wonder if.
Then in the quiet, in the stillness, as I devour your truth again.
I wonder that you are there amidst all my failings, all my doubts, to comfort and encourage and love me still.
Whispering, “Sweet child, wonder not in your circumstances, I am here. Wonder only in me.”
My heart responds, “Yes Lord. I will Wonder. Wonder in your greatness and glory and faithfulness.”
