Sunday Blog: Hopeful Anticipation

We have all heard that we need to focus on the things that are in our control rather than worrying about the things that are out of our control.  Many times our happiness is tied to our expectations.  Therefore, if we want things to meet our expectations it is better to focus on things that we can influence.  But, the reality is that we have no control over a large majority of our circumstance.  The out of our control things is where I believe we should Hope in the Lord. 

Isaiah 40:31 says, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

I believe we should live our life making the absolute best and most of everything that is in our control, and then fully trust in the Lord to handle everything else.  We should live in hopeful anticipation of what the Lord has in store for us and trust in his timing.  Let the Lord lift the burden of all the things that you have no control over so you can soar on wings like eagles.
