I recently heard someone make an important observation about trusting God:
It’s important to pray with expectancy, but without expectations.
Simple… but not easy. Especially when we can perfectly map out the exact steps we believe would be best for our lives. And then proceed to trust God to meet our very specific expectations. But faith is waiting with expectancy. Believing – knowing – that He will do something and whatever it is will be more “right” for us, and far more surprising than we could ever have imagined.
