Expectations

Floral

“I am sorry,” the doctor stated, “we will not be able to do your daughter’s procedure this morning.”

I could feel tears begin to well in my eyes. I couldn’t hold them back. I had gotten up in the wee hours of the morning to arrive at the hospital. Elena desperately needed this procedure. In the past it had helped to prevent the pneumonias we were continually fighting back to back. I knew it would be a game changer for her. 

What poured out of my mouth I am ashamed to say was not characteristic of a Christian woman and actually resembled an angry mamma bear. 

I was expecting that things would go as planned. 
I was expecting that my Elena would benefit from our scheduled procedure. 
I was expecting that the long drive to and from Milwaukee would not be for nothing. 

When we place our hope in the things of this world, we can often end up feeling frustrated and deceived when things do not go according to our expectation. 

But as Christians we are called to place our hope and expectation in the Lord (Psalm 62:5) and in His many promises (Psalm 89:34).

Join us this week on Finding God Fridays where my sister Mandy Nackers and I discuss a few of the promises we have in God’s word and in who we should be placing our expectation. 
Love and Blessings, 
Mindy
