Today’s word is: EXPECTATION

GO

Expectation is often seen as a dirty word. It’s a word that is filled with so much. It is a fat word that is filled with so many things that can’t be met.

I expect my children to do such and such.
I expect my husband to treat me this way.
I expect my friends to answer me.
I expect God to bless me…in the way that I expect.

But right now as I sit at the edge of my seat, knowing there is a decision looming that will effect the next few months of my life, I am expectant. But expectant in a different, peaceful way. And the Lord has filled me with that. When I laid on a doctor’s table a few days ago, the Lord had filled me with such expectation that I was at peace with what I saw and heard.

The Lord met me and filled me for the last few months with expectation.
The expectation of brokenness.
The expectation of loss.
The expectation of peace.
For the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is living and active and filling me up with the expectation and knowledge of His amazing power to raise.

STOP

  1. “For the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is living and active and filling me up with the expectation and knowledge of His amazing power to raise.” Beautifully put!

  2. Expectations can have lots of different sides … love how the words you use in this post take it the idea of expectations from one emotion to another!

  3. Such truth here. Compared to wholeness with Jesus in the life to come, everything here is brokenness. Trying to put my own expectation squarely on eternity, the only way to protect this life from the disappointment of hope deferred. Thank you for sharing!
