It's FRIDAY! That means it's time for another Five Minute Friday where, we, as our hostess and inspiration, The Gypsy Mama, puts it, write "For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not."
Want to join us? Then be sure and visit The Gypsy Mama today!
Now...for today's assignment....
Expectation! The very word fairly rings with excitement! And it is with high expectation that, all too often, we dream about the future.
As young women we dream with expectation of finding the perfect man, having the perfect wedding, living in the perfect house, and raising the perfect family, Oftentimes we set our ideals too high and our expectations crumble into depression as the realities of an imperfect life settle in.
Perhaps it is the wrong thing in which we place our hopes...our dreams...our expectations. All too often I have overlooked the obvious and placed my own expectations into the hands of others...trusting and relying on them to fulfill my happiness and determine my destiny...instead of into the hands of God...the One Who knitted me together in my mother's womb...the One Who holds my eternal future.
"My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him" (Psalm 62:5).
