Today is Friday. We write free and bold and with out self-editing. For five whole minutes.
Today’s word: Expectation
Expectation. Is it bad? Is it good? I don’t know. Expectations often lead to disappointment and embarrassment. Expectations often lead to sadness and despair. We want what we want. We expect good things to happen, then they don’t. We expect God to take care of us…and He does. Expectations of God are a tricky thing. He never promised us a rosy life, but He did promise that He would always be there. He did promise that he would always walk through “it” with us. He did promise that He would carry us when we needed Him (whether we knew it or not). He did promise that give us just the right amount of strength and grace to get through the storms in life. Those are expectations we can take to the bank. We can cash in those promises. We can expect to survive this life as we walk with expectation into the next. We can expect that God will show up in our deepest, darkest moments. We can expect that he will do what He says He will do. Because He is Who He is. He is the Creator of the Universe after all. He is what least expect Him to be and more. He is mother and father to us all. He is gentle friend and firm counselor. We can expect the best from Him. We can expect to shine out His glory in our life.
