Wondering about Wandering
I truly love 5 minute Friday. If you have never…you should… just try it today. It only takes the obvious 5 minutes…well unless you are like me and you add pics after the 5 minutes is up…but the 5minutes is in regards to the writing…right? Right.
This weeks word….Wonder.
I walk through the garden with my youngest child. Only 16months old but when I ask her to pick a pea…she cheerfully rustles through the cool vines and pics a light green pod. She thinks better of giving it to me and crunches it down with her few teeth and picks another for her momma. She didn’t hesitate..she knew which were the peas…it doesn’t cross her mind to pick an onion or a pepper or even something off the green bean vines…she knows. She has walked with me through our garden nearly every morning this spring and now turned summer. She sees the pretty flowers and sniffs them and doesn’t pull them off. She knows these things because she has followed me and watched what I do.
I wonder if that is why God seems to tell everyone to “just be” these days. Have we all wondered and wandered around harmlessly and inactively for so long that He is drawing us close and asking us to just sit in His love because we just don’t know Him. Us who have written volumes on Him …Us who could modge podge the earth with all the sheet music declaring our love in songs and speech…we just don’t know Him…enough. So He seems to be everywhere telling everyone to tell everyone else; just be in His love and feel His presence. I wonder if the thing which God is telling everyone…telling His people, is because we don’t really have a firm relationship with Him. We think we do…I think I do… but if we truly were in sincere actual relationship with Him would we be sitting around writing books about how to work in His Kingdom…or would we,if we really were in relationship with Him, would we know His ways and not sit in cozy nooks wondering what to do but acting as one does when they are in true relationship…and actually do the things He has called us to do. There is so much to do.
So much else to say on this subject. My fingers can’t keep up with my mind. But if you have a 5minute friday I would love to read it ….so link to it in the comments. IF you have never 5minute Friday you really should. You maybe amazed at what types out.
