Father, forgive me. Too often, my expectations focus only on the negative.
I fear, I doubt, I dread.
And I pray. But are my pleas against the things I fear or for the things I know You can do?
I know how much my thoughts guide my attitude. So shouldn’t I be watching with eager anticipation to see what You have planned?
Lord, help my expectations to be only those of eager hope in Your goodness, earnest trust in Your faithfulness.
“I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
