It’s Monday With Joshua & Kerrie . . . Expectation


Monday is our day to ramp it up and renew an element of living.  *We recommend this practice for individuals, couples, and families as well as organizations.  This practice serves who we are and what we do.

This week our conversation at the table centers on the value of forming an expectation of the best in our “not-yet.” 

Expectation is our big topic all month long.  (You can read about it in the article, December 2019: The Month Of Expectant Waiting.) 

Waiting for the not-yet is a challenge.   Worry and stress easily set in as we think on what could be.

The thing is . . . the root cause of worry, stress, and anxiety . . . is fear.

Fear drives us to the negative side while expectation opens the door to find ways to navigate our way through whatever situation we encounter.

It takes time and work to move out of the pattern of thinking, behaving, and speaking through fear. 

Doing what we always do brings a level of comfort. To leave the comfort of our old ways is never easy but always freeing.  

One Thing 

Of course, removing fear from thoughts, behavior, and conversations is not an overnight process.   Asking questions is one thing to do in the process of change:

  • Is this from wisdom or fear?
  • Is this creating the expectation of a positive or a negative outcome?
  • Is this eliciting hope or hopelessness?

Ramp Up 

Are you waiting?

Ramp up your expectation of God’s more.

God has much more than can be imagined for the “not-yet.”

There’s always more each and every day~Joshua & Kerrie
