Five Minute Friday: Expect

It’s Friday.  Linking up again with Kate Motaung.

Today’s prompt is: expect.

*******************

I can’t help but think of hope when I hear the word expect.

Hope, that critical element that we can’t live without.  It’s what keeps us going when we’re discouraged.

It’s what we need to get up in the morning.

It’s what keeps us serving, thinking of others instead of ourselves.

It’s what helps us deal with grief and despair.

The hope that this life is not all there is.

The hope an eternity of joy and blessing.

That idea is the spark that moves us forward.

*******************

Last night when I took a peek at the prompt expect, my mind turned to pregnancy.

But, this morning, my heart was full thinking about the funeral of a dear friend later today.

I’ve thought a lot about how hope is one of life’s most critical elements.  Today, it’s hitting deeper that our eternal hope is the bedrock to virtually all we do.

For me, to wait in expectation means to hope.

I’m so thankful for that hope.
