many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord."
What are you looking forward to in 2009? What resolutions if any have you made? What expectations do you have? Where is your hope and expectation? Some years ago God had an important lesson to teach me about expectations. If my expectations are in others I will be disappointed at some point in time. See I had a particular expectation , that if I tried hard enough, and strived to do all of the right things, that the circumstance or situation would turn out like I hoped. This has been true for many relationships that I have had over the years with family and friends. This simply is not true, and will set you up for much disappointment!
I have finally started getting it after many, many times of failure in this area. The only one who will never disappoint is the Lord!
"I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, and in His word do I hope." Psalm 130:5My prayer is that in 2009 our hope and expectation will be in HIM alone, the One"who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us" Ephesians 3:20
Have a blessed week. Jackie
