What are you expecting today? This week? This year? Next year? In the next five, ten, twenty years? Of yourself? Of others? Of God, if you are a believer?
Seriously. Think about it.
Your New Year’s resolution(s) results. Your hard work and efforts – professionally and/or personally. What. Do. You. Expect? To happen. To transform. To change. To stay the same.
Is the glass half full or mostly empty? Do you hope for the best? Expect the worst? Believe that good will prevail or generally sense the bad and the ugly?
These are not rhetorical questions simply asked for literary effect; rather they are fully intended to evoke emotion and deep thought in you – and me. And elicit responses within our own minds and hearts.
In his book, The Power of Positive Thinking, Norman Vincent Peale writes, “When you expect the best, you release a magnetic force in your mind which by a law of attraction tends to bring the best to you.”
Now I’m no brain surgeon and I’m certainly far from a scientist or scholar, but y’all I believe it and I can attest to it: Expect great things and great things will happen!
I could go on and on with testimonies and Lord willing I’ll keep up with this blog and eventually share a few real-life events that only He could orchestrate through my faith in Him AND positive expectations.
Would you join me in the journey of great expectations? I’d love to hear your stories……
