I found myself wondering what would happen if I had expectancy about what God could do but didn't put expectations on Him? I hate it when people put difficult expectations on me, so it is unfair of me to do the same to God.
How different would my faith look if I didn't have expectations of God? I am now aiming to have expectancy about what God will do.
The second question I have about this is whether I am putting expectations on myself about my writing. Or do I have a sense of expectancy about what I write? How different will my writing be if I have expectancy about what God and I can achieve together, rather than putting difficult expectations on myself.
I think I have been putting expectations on myself about what my writing should be. I don't treat myself with grace and expectancy. I am going to surrender my writing to God again and see what we can achieve, the Holy Spirit and myself working in expectancy together. What about you?
