How many times have we waited with expectation for something to occur in our lives or our loved ones life. Expectation can be positive or it can be negative, depending on what the consequence might be. Expectation can raise our hopes, it is a hope of a possibility. It might be a possiblity beyond our wildest dreams. My hope and expectation is in the Lord. I cling to His words and hide them in my heart.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11
My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation [is] from him. Psalm 62:5
