Do you live in fear or in expectation?

nathan-dumlao-287713I recently was blessed by these words sent to me in an email story…

Expectation positions us to see miracles, big and small. It sharpens our vision and focuses our attention towards God. It liberates us from apprehension that blinds us to the majesty before us.

Instead of being shackled by fearing the worst, we’re free to recognize and receive what God is delighted to give.

What are your current expectations of God?

And how does He want to expand them? 😀 

Graham Cooke, Shawn Bolz and Jonathan and Melissa Helser are doing an entire 3 day event this coming weekend on how to create a lifestyle of EXPECTATION in God! The event is sold out but you can click here to join the Livestream!

And beyond the event? Enjoy some brilliant perspectives…

Fearless One Minute, Freaking Out the Next

I soooo loved this post (found below)! “Whether you deny Jesus in what you do or don’t do, he forgives and restores you as he did Peter.”

I shared this post with a friend and she replied…

“That was fantastic!!! Thank you for sharing! I love all your ‘Peter’ moments! What an honour to know that you (we) will rise and fall, but that our Father is there EVERY TIME to pick us up, dust us off and praise us, sending us back on course.

You are beloved! Your energy is contagious as it exudes the love of our Father! I LOVE that about you! You share that same twinkle in your eye that your Dad has. Captivating, inviting, loving and spunky! Don’t ever change! I love you, just the way you are!!!”

Wow, I certainly have found a friend who has Christ’s love in her heart. May we all be so blessed. May we be that friend.

What Does The World Give?

What does the world give to us?

Trouble.

Disaster.

Worry.

Brokenness.

Fear…

And yet, we often settle for it. We don’t know there’s anything different. Or maybe we don’t believe it.

But He promised…

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid.”
