Hopeful Expectations (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 262)

hopeful-expectations

Psalm 130:5 (NLT)
I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.

Isn’t it interesting how we tend to count on people more than God? We put faith in careers, relationships, activities, security, and even travel and have a good deal of expectation that people will do what they say, that we’ll arrive halfway around the world safe and sound, that we will be loved, and that our jobs are stable, and that our families are safe in the communities we live in.

It helps us to see what is really going on above and beyond what we see in front of us.

Anticipating Something More

I’ve often wondered what happened on the day after Good Friday. Of course, we know Jesus lay in the tomb on this day. But after all the events of the previous day, it is hard not to think of the questions that may have run through the minds of Mary, John, and even the other disciples. For these people who had followed Jesus all the way to the cross, I am sure they felt deep down in the recesses of their soul, that this could not be it, this could not be the end.
