Where Do We Go From Here?


I was there, awkwardly swaying across the fated candle-lit dinner, naive in wonderment of how time and timing found me. 

I was there, singing fiery notes in doses of wonder while whispering sad songs of untitled romance 

I was there, running past the dazzling tree of yes towards the horizon that gave me a glimpse of a wonderful adventure 

I was there, hand-painting the first treasure chest to fill with wonder but the years started filling it with pearls 

I was there, fiercely sailing through the storm with the wonder of a child-like faith that believed love could conquer all 

I was there, weeping helplessly over little wonders kept ransom by time’s silver and timing’s gold

I was there, standing as a shield to every fatal blow of monstrous waves that became a blanket of darkness that took my sense of wonder away 

I was there, bleeding myself dry in the sharp edges of every crack I only felt but couldn’t see until the first burst of Wonder's light suddenly revealed the depth and gravity of the wreckage 

I was there, sinking deep into my final death on a Friday, with the last vivid memory of a cold embrace, wondering for the last time why wasn't I enough, why was love not enough 

I was there, spiraling in the abyss of my darkest why’s until dawn kissed the waters goodbye when Wonder took me by the hand and said, "Little girl, I say to you, Arise" Immediately, Wonder filled me and brought me to life. 

I was there, breathing warmth without rage, feeling the sand on my skin without pain, standing across the sea in a state of wonder 

I was there, looking at the shipwreck with the last sigh of wonder, but Peace patiently sang melodies of warfare won with a ship made of iron and steel, warfares fought by soldiers wearing the armor of the most High whose only offensive weapon was the Sword of Truth. 

I was there, until I realized I wasn't anymore. And so, I wondered - “Where do we go from here?" Amos whispered, "Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction? (3:3)" 

While He was carrying me and my little boy, my mind quietly asked, "I thought love would conquer all?". 

And boldly, without hindrance, my heart rejoiced in light of a quick response : 

Wonder is He, whose Love on the cross conquered ALL. Wonder is He, whose name is above all names. Wonder is He, who is the way, truth, and life. Wonder is He, who is a promise keeper, way maker, miracle worker. Wonder is He, who is the Lord Almighty. Never just One, but Three. 

- theWONDERhuman || In 2017 I thought it was just about fighting for my childlike wonder. But the promise has been fulfilled long before I even got here in 2022: without Wonder, I am only human.  

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. - Galatians 2:20 


Here I am Lord.
