What Kind of Wonder


I see that word
Twice now
On the back of a cab
As I’m driving around this busy place.

Might have even been a year ago
When I first saw that same cab
Maybe he lives near me
Or maybe You’re trying to remind me of something

There are two types of wonder

Sometimes you wonder
Wonder how it will all work out
Wonder if you make the right decisions
Focused on the right things
Wonder if there is time for this or that

That’s the wrong kind of wonder
It implies doubt

Doubt lives in fear
It does not live in love

You have a choice
What kind of wonder will you live in?
Because

I make you wonder

That’s what I hear
  the Spirit whisper in my ear

I make you wonder –
Marvel at how things work
   when you least expect
Blessings overwhelming

Suddenly the boy makes the travel soccer team
The house to rent - sight unseen - that you’re still living in seven years later
The perfect fit of a job for your husband after one career had finished

Wonder
   at the grace of new seasons
Wonder
   where the strength for the daily battles comes from
Wonder
    At the source of the words of wisdom
    that just poured out of your mouth

Live a life of wonder
   in rapt astonishment and attention
   of Someone so awesome

Stay close to me
In your heart
In awe of me
Amazed admiration
