Expectations...

Expectations... defined as "the act of looking forward to something."  Enthusiasm... defined as "passionate devotion to or interest in a cause or subject."

Today, I am reflecting upon the fact that when expectations fade, so does one's enthusiasm.  It is a difficult emotion to put into words... it's like one's heart is broken!  I guess it is because of our humanity... a condition that can only be made perfect when we get to the other side of eternity one day!

As I struggle with this emotion today... I am spurred on by the words found in Philippians 3:14.  These words are from The Message:
... I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward — to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.  So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us.
Here I am.  Lord, send me!
