It feels like it’s been ages since my last post. I have been
incredibly busy but it goes much deeper than that. The
drive to write left. I am serious. I woke up one day and
nothing! Conpletely nothing! It wasn’t because of a lack of
The stuff I had didn’t feel relevant so I trashed it.
Maybe I was just being lazy, I don’t know.
Anyway I am back and ready…..(anyone else feel the same?)
There is a scripture that spoke to me this past weekend,
[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed
that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!
Wait and hope for and expect the Lord;
be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and
Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.
Psalm 27:13, 14
As we go through life we need to believe. We need to believe
things will change, we need to believe the winters will end, we
need to believe God will deliver us from our fiery storms!
Without a belief in God’s goodness, our lives will be miserable.
It’s not wrong to believe in the goodness of the Lord. It’s
not wrong to believe God will breakthrough for you. It’s
not wrong to believe in God period!
So if it’s not wrong, believe!
No matter how dark things are, believe.
No matter how impossible a situation seems, believe.
No matter the years you have spent waiting on God,
He will come through for you!
“Wait and hope for and expect the Lord”
I love these words. Wait, hope for and expect the Lord!
Wait on the Lord. It’s because He loves you that He makes
Hope for the Lord. Put your hope in Him! Like I heard
someone once say, be a prisoner of hope. Never stop
hoping! The Lord is faithful and He sees your hope in
Expect the Lord to move on your behalf.
Expect the Lord to answer your prayers.
As I have spoken on those three amazing words we must not
ignore the next part of that verse,
“be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout
It’s not easy to wait, hope for, and expect the Lord.
It’s a battle to wait
It’s hard to keep hoping
It’s a fight to be expectant
The word says as you do those things (wait, hope for, expect),
your heart must be stout and enduring, you must have courage and
Waiting on the Lord, putting your hope in the Lord, being
expectant will stretch you to the limit. Even when you feel
like giving up hope, keep hoping, be expectant, wait!
Don’t let the darkness around you quench your faith.
As I close remember to wait on the Lord, put your hope
in the Lord and expect the Lord!
God bless you….
