Gotcha. You thought I was about to announce a bun in the oven, didn’t ya? No. My baby bump would be a direct result from chips and queso, thank you.
I’m expecting God to do something. Not part the Red Sea again. Although, sometimes, I feel like I’m standing at one. Do you ever feel this stirring in your spirit, and you just can’t seem to put into words or completely comprehend it? But, you know that God is doing something. He is working something out for your good. Or He is preparing you for a something different.
Maybe it’s because I’m being stretched right now. I’m stepping out into things that I haven’t stepped out into before. I’m not resisting it…..too much. I’m trusting in Him. I’m operating more in faith. I’m allowing myself to be clay for the Potter. How’s that for some good, old-fashioned ,spirit-filled talk?
He is doing something new. I’m not even being my usual impatient self, desperate to know what tomorrow will bring. At least not today. I am, however, desperate in wanting more of Him. And, I’m just enjoying the ride along the way.
No matter where we are in life at this moment. In a valley. On a mountaintop. You can trust that our Father is always doing something new.
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
Are you expecting?

Oh, you have no idea how much I am expecting.
The older I get the more I enjoy His presence and know that He has good things for me.
I confirm it! Good ole spiritfilled comment. I have been at the “EXPECTING PLACE” many, many times….I would much rather be there than the “DOUBTING PLACE.”
These last few weeks I have been filled with His spirit and blessed with His presence. I just feel this calmness in my life that I don’t know that I have ever felt before. Ever since I laid all of my fears and troubles and anxieties and anger at the cross, I have been blessed with His love and have grown closer to Him and in turn have repaired relationships and grown closer to those around me. I am expecting as well. And whether it is good or bad I expect it to only bring me closer to Him and in turn closer to the ones I love.
I think I’m reluctantly expecting…how stupid. Why do I think I need to give God an “out” just in case he doesn’t deliver?!
I WANT to be expecting him fully.
Thanks for those words.
I am thirsty! Thirsty for God’s Spirit. I keep trying to clean up so I am deserving but I need to give up and let my Savior save me. I think God is waiting on me to give up trying to do it myself. Yes, I’m expecting too. I need to stop saying I’ll do it tomorrow and start letting go today!
I love the post for today! I’m definitely expecting. I think I’m gonna write that scripture on my dry erase board. (By the way, I’m so proud that you gave Scoop a link on here, but can you direct it to http://www.readscoop.com? We don’t use that typepad blog anymore. We built our own from scratch! I feel like a jerk for asking, but… I’m asking.) 🙂
Great blog Dusty! I am expecting great things too, and especially for Eagles Way Church!!! I am in the mode of gleaning from God’s promises, and it is sooo refreshing, when things just happen, or prayers are answered, people cross your path that God put there. Or suddenly something happens that you have been waiting to happen, it happens!
I am believing for your life too BIG things. I appreciate our friendship!
TOTALLY EXPECTING!!! It has been fun to see others blessed because MY Cup is running over on them. Heck, i know others are in the presence of God because I brought Him with me. I told H.C. the other day: “if you were God, wouldn’t you want to do cool, fun things for your kids?” I think He is bursting at the seams to Enjoy us. Beyond what we can even begin to imagine!! THANKS for your post!!!!
