Wonder


Be curious always! For knowledge will not acquire you; you must acquire it. - Sudie Back

I'm a bit late in linking up with The Gypsy Mama's Five Minute Friday. However, I liked the topic and wanted to see where it would lead me. Here I go...

The Topic is Wonder.

I wonder what would happen in today's world if every single person would do one thing extra to be a little kinder to every person they came in contact with.

I wonder what would happen if forgiveness would be instantly given upon a committed grievance instead of resentment, hurt and anger being held for long periods of time.

I wonder what would happen if we all focused on how much we have and not on how much more we would like to get/achieve/be.

I wonder if I truly lived the way God wanted me to live if I could do more with what I have for others.

That may not make sense to you, but it does to me. I've been wanting to help more people in my life but always feel like I can't because of my health issues and financial status.

Perhaps if I lived with reckless abandon and followed God's Word to the Letter - my cup would overflow, my joy would be limitless and my financial windfall would come dump on my head.

I think I need to stop here, slap myself upside the head and kick myself in my own rear and ask myself, "Ya think?"

God's Word has all the answers. It holds all the clues to a wonderful life. I'm reading it daily. I'm studying it and drawing wisdom from it. I just need to push myself to live IN it fully and then I believe I could wonder no more.


PS: Image is of the garage sale my sister-in-law put together for a young boy with cancer. This image is just a portion of the donations brought in. The contributions and donations were amazing. The people coming together to help out strangers were incredible. God's presence was felt abundantly. Prayers are being answered for this dear family but more are needed as this child continues with his treatment.
Thinking of all my sister-in-law did - and her family - and the friends and community... gives me a huge sense of wonder and awe at the miracles that happen if we step out of ourselves just a little bit more and give.
