Wonder and Delight

 
My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.
Psalm 62:5 NKJV
 
 

 
 
 
 
This weekend I was wondering if I should take a couple weeks off from blogging, so I gave myself persmission to do just that.
 
 
Then this morning, I noticed the two chairs I recently placed around the table, painted with the words: Wonder and Delight.
 
I chose delight last summer, so I decided to paint another word on the second folding chair. I thought to myself, what word goes with delight? Moments later, wonder popped into my mind. I was delighted.
 
Always needing more definition in my life, I went to the dictionary to search out the meaning.
 
wonder (n): a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar or inexplicable. (New American Oxford Dictionary)
 
Ahhh…the joy of words strung together like jewels on a necklace. As I marvelled over the depth of wonder, I began to worship the One who delights to reveal Himself through words.
 
Here is a little poem to our Wonderful God, who delights in our praises.
 
Why,
O, Lord, do such
New and amazing
Discoveries
Enter daily into my
Reality?
 
May this be your experience today:
 
Wide-
Opened eyes delighting in
New
Discoveries.
Embracing ever-widening
Reality.

  1. Thanks Lynni- It is nice to have a visual reminder to wonder AND to delight…sometimes life pulls me to doubt and despair…but those two words remind me where to go when I feel those other words pulling at me…right back into the presence of Jesus!

  2. Kel–so you're just gonna smile when you read my post about taking 6 weeks off from blogging….was thinking of you and others when I wrote it and I had no idea…. Must be God, eh?Wonder and delight–oh, Father give us eyes to see.

  3. Jody- I did smile…it seems that there needs to be a balance between silence and blogging…I am so excited for your Advent(ure) with God this season…I am glad that you sense the freedom to be silent (sort of)
