Anticipation

Our lives are made up of many anticipations. Right now we are anticipating the arrival of Granddaughter #2❤️ and cannot wait to greet this beautiful little one into our lives. We all look forward to so many new and exciting events in our lives that bring joy and often butterflies because of happiness and also the unknown!
Although anticipation can have wonderful results, it can also have a negative cloud of fear and dread. Christ encourages us in Matthew 6: 25 – “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26. Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27. Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “
Christ anticipated the joy and victory that was on the other side of the suffering of the cross. In Hebrews 12:2 is written “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
No matter the anticipations that are ahead of us, may we put them into God’s hands to produce a wonderful outcome. As through the pain of child birth, what is beyond produces life and joy. May we anticipate God’s blessings in hope and peace.
