    A great verse that reminds us that our expectation is from the Lord and what HE will do. Praise the Lord that He is able to answer above all we could ask or think. Praise the Lord that there is nothing too hard for Him and that He is the God of the impossible. Praise the Lord that we can have such great expectations from Him.

    Sometimes in our rush we tend to forget our waiting upon Him who created us. Praise the our LORD God does not forget us. We all need to slow down and wait upon Him who created all things. He has everything in control. Thank you Lord God for being in us and leading us. Forgive our iniquity and not waiting on you. We love you Lord and we ask that everything in us that is not of you you remove and fill those areas with more of the Holy Spirit. Thank you AMEN

    Sometimes the soul wants to experience love, makes us do things, get into relationships just for the longing of love of our soul. Its hard to wait when the soul is screaming but that's the balance in life we need to achieve. Waiting on god but not letting our soul die to withholding love but waiting for our expectation which is of God
