What are you Expecting?

Year by year, the complexities of this spinning world grow more bewildering, and so each year we need to all the more, seek peace and comfort in the joyful simplicities.  

What are you expecting from  your tomorrow?  Have you allowed yourself the time to fellowship with the Lord, or have you AGAIN......Overloaded your day?


I love to open my door each morning to find, that God has so sweetly prepared  a unique day for me to enjoy.   Sometimes I develop a somewhat selfish attitude, and I begin to plan out my day as if  God intended for the day to be about ME ONLY!!  Should I give myself a pat on the back?  Because, after all,  I did open the door and say "Thank you Lord for this gorgeous day?"  

When I overload my day and I fail to spend quality time with God, I usually find myself becoming very weary and tired!  Who am I to think that I can walk through any given day, without strength from the Lord?  This world that we live in is a busy place!!! It is very easy to get so caught up in the  things of the world and if we are not careful, we can easily find ourselves spinning much faster than we had ever intended. 

There are days, when I have to go back to that door at the back of our home, and start the day all over again.  I have to take time to reboot my spiritual soul!  I have to ask God to forgive me for being in such a hurry and for placing HIM on the back burner for the day.

 I've grown to realize that happiness begins with a grateful heart!  I am at my happy place when I take my daily stroll with the Lord and allow HIM to direct my steps and guide me through my day!!

What am I expecting from my tomorrow?  I'm expecting Blessings that I never knew would be mine!
I'm expecting a good report from the eye doctor.  Sure....I have some lightning flashes in my left eye right now, but God is in the business of healing and for this reason, I am expecting good news.
I'm expecting my loved one to be saved, I'm expecting to be used by God, for HIS glory.     Expecting is Believing!

Very good reminders! So much work for The Lord needs doing and I'm usually trying to fritter my day away on nonsense or my own pleasures. Seek his kingdom first...

Let us know how your eye appt is going and if you all found a solution for your dad.

I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your open and honest posts. I am at the receiving end of blessings when I take the time to read your posts.I do know that when I allow God to direct my life everything turns out so much better.
