Expectation – to see correctly

09 Jun

Another 5 Minute Friday topic

that God had me ready for.

When I made my favorite meal

I certainly didn’t expect this!

As I heard it fall I said


But, because God had me ready,

I expected to see this His way.

I expected Him to show me something.

And He did.

He showed me that theme of the week, seeing,

had me ready for this mess.

Nothing profound.

Nothing super-spiritual in a mess of homemade spaghetti sauce.

Just Him helping me clean up with a different perspective.

When my expectation is in Him

He always delivers!

    As we have experienced just this week He is a God of the unexpected! And living with expectation prepares us to accept His gifts. We are so blessed, and I am completely blessed by your words here. Thanks for sharing your heart, sweet friend! And for blessing our family this week. 🙂

      Thank you my fellow wordsmith. It is neat to see how God works things out like that every now and then.

    I’ve got a big dent in my wood floor from dropping a mayonnaise jar. All the spills and broken things in our homes (and in our lives) can be reminders of a life well-lived, and a God who redeems all.

      So true, Jennifer! Thanks for the encouragement. How’s it going? I’ve been “unplugged” for several weeks. Hugs to you!
