What's your expectation when something happens?

When the phone rings or a situation arises. When your loved one is late or an unexpected envelope arrives in the mail?

What's your default expectation?

The other day, as I was walking my daughter to our car after school, she shared that she had gotten a letter from the school, labeled,  To the Parents of..., with her name on it. 

And she shared how she felt worried. How she couldn't think of anything she'd done wrong, but she still felt worried.

And it got me thinking about expectation.

About how when things come up, whether expected or unexpected, we have a choice. 

A choice to worry. Or a choice to trust.

A choice to fret. Or a choice to rejoice.

And so, as we walked, we talked.  About expectation. 

About the expectation of good. 

About how it might look if we walked around with our default expectation, the expectation of good!

In fact, a glorious, marvelously joy-filled expectation of good!

About how it might sound in our minds and feel in our hearts. 

Just think about it!

What if, in every circumstance and every situation, we had the glorious expectation of good!

What if, instead of going into a meeting or conversation or situation with a thought of, Oh no, what if this isn't good our default thought was, This is going to be great! Whatever it is, God knows the answer and He has the solution! 

Wow, what a difference that would make! To ourselves and all those around us!

A glorious expectation of good!

No worry, only trust. N o anxiety, only joy!

And so today, I encourage us. To say yes to Holy Spirit's transforming of our minds, from an expectation of the negative to a glorious expectation of good!

That's what I'm looking for! And that's what I'm going after!

I'm asking Holy Spirit to transform my mind. And I'm allowing Him to do it - through every situation, every moment of every day.

And the letter in my daughter's backpack? Yes, it was good. 

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. from Romans 12:2 NIV

Do not be shaped by this world; instead be changed within by a new way of thinking. from Romans 12:2 NCV

Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. from Romans 12:2 NLT

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called  according to His purpose. Romans 8:28 NIV

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8 NKJV
