My expectation. My expectation?
A few weeks ago a prophetic voice began to write me. His most recent interaction with me had to do with this thought. This is what he said to me.
High expectations are the key to everything! David said “my expectations, come from the Lord” what are you expecting?
What was I expecting?
Expectation-the act or state of expecting-anticipation
What was I looking forward to? Was I excited? Filled with anticipation? Did I have a clue?
And so over the week away this thought thundered through my mind. What am I pregnant with? For many a year I challenged people to get “pregnant” with the Holy Ghost. To have “His child” if you will.
What did God want from me? From you? What was His expression through us going to look like.
I realized that I did expect to live forever. To not be sick. To love Him more each day. To love those about me more passionately. But, I also realized I had lost “my fire” to some degree. I am more in love with Him today than I was some 25 years ago.
Yet, in the light of circumstance I allowed things to take over. To settle, if you will.
I somewhat know when it began. I know when it changed. (By the way I am looking for the “long burn” not the “explosive, got to keep lighting it all the time kind”.) So, I evaluated it this week. I do not have all the answers but I will be reaching out to some. To Him.
I had a word picture form.
I thought about a recent expectation. If you know me, you know that getting away to the lake was high on my radar screen. I was filled with anticipation. Family, fun, food! I was excited. I was like Tigger. I was like the Pointer Sisters lyrics, “I’m so excited and I can’t hide it!” I drove people crazy! (It was worth it.)
So, I want to be that excited about the moving of God in my midst. I want to be that excited about it.
What is my expectation? God what did you give me? How did I get in the way? Why did I lower my thinking? How do I raise my thinking? I want another “child”.
And so there are a number of things I have determined to change. They might not mean anything to you. But with each change I expect to move back on the course. I expect to become lighter and more agile.
What is my high expectation?
