Expectation

imagethough much is taken

for seizures

the brain misfires

 

Over and over again, God miraculously protects from injury.

 

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

Give Me Children!

“Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, ‘Give me children or else I die!’ ”  Genesis 30:1 NKJV

Sometimes we expect too much from one another.

Thank You, Lord, for being our ultimate first responder.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We can’t
fix things
the way
God can

but can have
compassion
being His feet
and hands.

God bless you as you turn to Him first today!

Deal Gently

“Now the king had commanded Joab, Abishai, and Ittai, saying, ‘Deal gently for my sake with the young man Absalom’.  And all the people heard when the king gave all the captains orders concerning Absalom.”  2 Samuel 18:5

But Absalom would not be dealt with gently.

Lord, please cover us when our wishes and expectations are not honored.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Unmet

How I love the gentle way
and when people respond
just the way I want them to
but that’s not what life is made of.

So when my expectations
are unmet and duly crushed
hide me in that place where You were
in a tomb, a grave, on a cross.

Delivered From Expectations

“And when Peter had come to himself, he said, ‘Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people’.” Acts 12:11

We all live under a lot of “expectations”. I once asked God what HE expected of me. His reply . . .a right heart attitude.

Lord, please help us separate other expectations from Your desires. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Expecting Jesus

Unreal expectations
bring disappointment

stretching relationships
snapping them into

until we come expecting
of the One who is annointed

who never fails to tell us
the right thing to do.
