Expecting What Is Deserved

Expect good things

Today is going to be my day.  This year is going to be my year.  No really I mean it this time.  I have said that with the passing of each New Year.  That it was going to be my year.  For the couple of years it had turned out not to be my year.  While I sat back and wondered why the year didn’t turn out how I imagined it would I was completely missing the bigger picture.  Now granted I know that last year wasn’t my year because I just threw in the towel but that’s no excuse either.

Watching Joel Osteen yesterday talk about expectancy and true, unwaivering faith in the things that God can bestow upon our lives it hit me.  Every time I claimed that my day was going to be a good one and every year when I proclaimed it would be my year, I didn’t really believe what I was saying.  I wanted to believe it was true but I was so full of despair and doubt that I only halfway believed it.  But if you want God to give you what you expect out of life, what you deserve, and what he wants you to ask for, you can’t halfway believe in his power.  You have to have complete and total faith that God has got you and that what he has for you is yours and yours alone.

So I say today is my day this morning and that this year is my year, totally believing in God’s power and having faith in his plan for me.  However, I also say that with the knowledge that I can’t just expect that everything that is for me is going to just come to me with putting in the work to earn it.

I am working on a couple of projects, one being an ebook series that I will be releasing soon (really soon) and I can’t just expect outstanding results without putting in the work to get them.  So today, for all of you out there who are still struggling with self-doubt and self-sabotage (ebook series on how to work past this coming soon) claim today to be your day, say it with conviction and complete faith.  You have to start somewhere!
