Five Minute Friday :: Wonder


I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday with the writing prompt

Wonder...
Go

All wrapped up tidy into my imagination are my thoughts and my intellect. The capacity of what my human cognitive power will hold. Everything that can be explained, and made plain to see.

Yet, in the capacity of my imagination, everything that my mind sees and that can be explained can also be debated and turned on it's head. It is a place where, if I were my own ultimate authority, my truth would simply be my own. A place where I may reason yet, wonder explained away.

Bursting at the seams of my imagination is wonder. It is what goes beyond the capacity for understanding. It does not fit into my intellect or thought-process. It is what I see - and all that I don't see - and must simply believe. It is where a swelled heart or dropped jaw cannot be explained; where there is no debate. And I simply marvel at what moves my heart and surpasses my imagination.

Wonder is what humbles me to know there is one greater...and I am small.

Stop
Now it's your turn! Give it your best five minutes!

  1. This is beautiful, and so true. I very much resonate with this, and love what you said about everything your mind sees, being turned on its head. I fight this battle everyday, and like you, rest in the knowledge of a God who is greater than I. I am grateful for God's mysteries - this leaves my faith in constant wonder.

  4. You are an amazing writer, Theresa. I'm a writer, but I never could come up with something that creative or beautiful in five minutes. I'm better at teaching and explaining, but you are creative. Love, Dad.

  5. Another beautiful Five Minute Friday post from you. Love this: "It does not fit into my intellect or thought-process. It is what I see - and all that I don't see - and must simply believe." Such truth.

    And yes: "Wonder is what humbles me to know there is one greater...and I am small." That Greatness is what I feel in His creation and love so deeply. It's so filling to be enveloped in His greatness.
