Meet Me At This Moment: Wonder

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another Meet Me At This Moment for Five Minute Friday post! I spend the last hour of Thursday chatting it up with a group of authentic and inspiring Five Minute Friday bloggers on Twitter (#FiveMinuteFriday #fmfparty). One minute past midnight EST Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker gives us a single word prompt and we all write a blog post centered around that word. We write for five minutes, and five minutes only! In the words of Lisa, this is “unscripted. unedited. real.” You meet me at this moment in time…my thoughts and opinions, my joys and sorrows, my dilemmas and dreams. And I receive one of the greatest gifts ever…a regular outlet for processing and expressing my thoughts without constantly editing myself. This is my life, my perspective, unfiltered.

The word of the week is WONDER.

Ready. Set. GO!

I wonder, yes I wonder. What am I to learn from these thoughts, these things that I see?

I wonder, yes I wonder. How to respond to this abundance of dancers in front of me? Wild and free, beautiful, graceful, spinning open wide for the world to see. Sit or stand, or dance more too? What is it Lord, you want me to do?

I wonder, yes I wonder. What to do with the soul that got lost in my fumbling early morning fingers, a video, an email. How is it, I am to respond? Which way is up? Which way is down? Which is your way? Or any at all?

I wonder, yes I wonder. This question that’s been asked. What does it mean? What is the answer? What do you want? Where will you lead? How will I know?

I wonder, yes I wonder. What is this quiet? And what is this noise? What am I to do with all of that, Lord?

I wonder, yes I wonder. Why so much? Why so little? Why such disparity? What is the message from you to me?

I wonder, yes I wonder. What is next? What should I do? What would you have me do? How would you have me?

Are you directing these thoughts, these ponderings to something specific, Lord? These jumbled up thoughts and random little visions, moments all together, faint glimmers of perfect sense. And I wonder. Is it possible these thoughts and these visions are from you? Is it possible that the linear, aligned, organized, planned visions I believe necessary for proper functioning are nothing but a figment of my worldly belief system? Unattainable fiction? Your ways, your paths, your fragments, your still small voice calling out, all seemingly random, but so clear in a new light?

Oh I wonder, yes I wonder.


…”Be still, and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10

    The verse you shared brought me to tears, such an easy thing to do these days…I wrestle with my own “wonderings” and feel so inadequate to even take a step into figuring out the WHAT and WHY’s of those inner most secret places and hoping it’s not so filled with dark that I can’t find Jesus there. I want to be still and to know… always, but my mind and heart are restless. Thank you for bearing a part of yourself and allowing others to see you.

  2. Thank you for this… just thank you. My heart has been so full of all of those questions… I am walking a narrow path as God is trying to show me that I can only rely on Him… I love that I am not the only wondering about the being still… Prayers for you friend… prayers on this journey.

      Hi Tonya. I am so grateful for your response this morning. To be honest, I wrote this last night at the prompt, but didn’t feel quite right about it. I woke up this morning to start over with a new post, but then read this one over again and felt I needed to post it. If only for you, then I am glad I decided to post it. What I have gained from others’ blogs is a knowledge I am not alone in my thoughts…I am so happy this post brings you some contentment knowing you are not alone. Many blessings to you on the narrow path, Tonya. 🙂
