Five Minute Friday – Expect

Joining with Kate at Heading Home

For five minutes of free writing.
“This is meant to be a free write, which means:
no editing, no over-thinking,
no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
Just write.”

This week’s prompt –Expect

GO

expect
• a : to consider probable or certain
• b : to consider reasonable, due, or necessary
• c : to consider bound in duty or obligated

expectation
• : a belief that something will happen or is likely to happen

 

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
Psalm 62:5

Where do i get my hope?
On whom do I set my affection?
On whom do I lean?

The LORD GOD who says:
I will never leave thee or forsake thee
I will send you a comforter
I AM the Lord God, I change not

These are the stones of my foundation.
As I learned to trust God for my every day needs.
He wrote these promises on the fleshly tables
of my heart with His own finger.

These promises are so apart of me –
the words and I are one.

No one can take them from me.
I can’t even sandblast them from my heart.
The words are set as if in stone.

For many times I have cried to My Father with full expectation
I would receive an answer.
He has never failed to answer.
Always as I have longed for, desired or in my wisdom considered best
No
Has His answer failed?
No
Has His answer damaged my expectation, my hope or my confidence in Him?

NO!

stop

  1. I love what you said, that his answers have never damaged you. So true. Thank you for hopping over to my blog + your berries look amazing! Have a great week!

  2. I so agree with you … Our expectations aren’t always what God has planned for us. We must lean on Him and not ourselves. Thanks for sharing! Visiting from Five Minute Friday!
