I used to expect trouble, kind of like Murphy’s Law. I expected to fail, and I did. I have since learned to hope for what God’s Word says. I expect the God that loved me so much He died for my sins finishes the work He started in me. I no longer live anticipating bad news; I am living the Good News watching for God’s provision for our souls.
Expectancy is Another Word for Faith
My hope for the future is colored bright.
I expect wrongs will be changed to right.
In every difficult step I take
I expect new strength in renewed faith.
Hope and expectation holds unto faith’s hand.
They are the three united to accomplish God’s plan.
We hope for a child, we in faith expect,
A beautiful God-given gift.
Love gives what we have faith to receive.
God is love and He gave all we can hope for to set us free.
When I get down in the dumps and hope and expectancy is low
My faith in God’s love lifts me up and will not let me go.
Then hope is renewed like a fresh rain on parched ground,
And expectancy for God’s favor again is found.
Faith looks up and will not look back
God’s love again has pulled the three united back on track.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
