Today is 5-Minute Friday when we write for five minutes on one specific word without listening to those critical voices. We write simply out of that creative spirit deep inside. Join me, Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama, and many other soul filled writers as we link up today for 5-Minute Fridays. Today’s word: Expectation
Last night I felt this tiny soul inside of me making room for herself in the tightness of my womb. I fell asleep to the flips and turns. When I woke up she let me know that she’s still there as if to say, “Mommy, good morning.”
I imagine her tight inside full of anticipation of what’s going on in this world she’s now a part of, even though she’s ever so small and doesn’t know what’s awaiting her here. Twenty short weeks and this world will be changed forever with her presence. What will that first gasp of air be like at her coming out party?
On the outside I hold the expectation for both of us. Each of her days offered up to God, imagining His grace and mercy and provision.
What will fill them?
My expectation is nothing but joy and peace and love. Or is that my hope?
Rest comes from knowing that my hope is in Him, and Him alone, who carries the weight of my expectations and makes the hopeless full of hope.
He will become the gap that fills in the space between my expectations and His sovereignty.
