Isn't Wonder just like our God? He is just waiting to be invited in... just waiting with baited breath and a racing heart for our attention to but shift toward Him... He's so lovesick and contagious, it's wonder full!
(Ya see what I did there?)
I've written about it around these parts and have talked on facebook and twitter about Wonder... about how he just keeps showing up and taking my breath away!
He is so flirty and mysterious and he makes my knees go weak in how he wants no glory, but he just points me right straight to God and wants to show me how much God loves me... (Turns out, He's crazy about me, ya'll! ...you, too! He's crazy in love with you too, friend! Oh how I hope you believe it!)
Wonder... the very definition of it means astonishment and awe! I will write a post all about my OneLittleWord and what I am learning soon, but today... today, I wanted to invite you to simply invite him in! I am joining in with Kelly and the rest of the Unforced Rhythms community in seeking out Wonder in a bit of our every days...
When we start looking for Wonder... it's ridiculous how quickly he starts coming around and showing off!
Lately, he's been hiding in plain sight in the fog. Literally... the rolling fog that lifts gently, and rolls back down... it swirls around me and I see it unfold in layers across the landscape. It's thick in mystery and while I am not a fan of not seeing, oh - how I love a wintry, fogged in day. For I know it will not last. I know the sun will break through and will warm my face and light my path once again.
Still... while it lasts, it begs for cozy blankets, (more) coffee and romantic words... It's a bit of Sabbath overflowing into a Monday morning and who am I to deny Wonder in having his way?
For his way is to point us to God... to cause us to catch our breath and remember how loved and adored we are... how we are ever in His heart and always on His mind.
Wonder is all around us if we will but slow and look... the other day, as the fog began to lift and thick clouds evaporated in the sun... it appeared as though steam was rolling across parking lots and sidewalks... like God had his own smoke machine to stir up mystery and intrigue...
and oh how it worked! My photo sadly doesn't truly capture the wonder of our Invisible God showing up and showing off... no, but my heart captured it and my day was better for it!
Last week I invited you to lay down your masks, and to just breathe in His presence...
This week, I am asking you to invite Wonder in! You won't be sorry that you did!
