Words to Walk By


Comments Off on Expectations 14 March 2017

Many of us struggle with expectations, ours and others. Learn what God says about expectations:

  • Sow a seed of expectation today and you will reap a reward – “Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame…cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit…pray…harder (Rom. 12:11-12 The Message).
  • You will only achieve at the level of your expectations. “Your souls aren’t harmed by what you eat, but by what you think… Expect more!” (Mk. 7:15-16 LB).
  • Whatever your expectations you will usually achieve them. “Be…cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times” (Rom. 12:12 The Message).
  • High achievement comes where there is high expectation. “I can do everything through him who gives me strength” (Phil. 4:13 NIV).
  • Your teammates will live up or down to your expectations! “Always expect the best of [them]” (1 Cor. 13:7 LB).
  • Base your expectations on God’s capacities! “God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways” (2 Cor. 9:8 The Message).

The painting in my logo is by an artist named Kelly O'Neill.

If you appreciate excellence in art and are captivated by works that grip your emotions and proclaim the remarkable truths of God’s Word, you will want to know more about the very compelling art piece that is part of my ministry logo.

Kelly O’Neill is a remarkable young artist who very masterfully depicts the compassion, grace, and redeeming love of Jesus Christ in her painting, “Redeemed.” No painting has so grabbed my emotions and stirred my gratitude to Christ for His redeeming love as this one. Technically unparalleled, inspired, heart-stirring, and mind captivating are words I used upon seeing it for the first time.

Getting to know Kelly and the background of her wonderful work have served as great motivators as I launch out on a new ministry path in my own life. Kelly is also the developer of my website.

I commend her and her work to you and encourage you to visit her website www.TheArtistOfLife.com
