WAIT EXPECTANTLY AND NOT ANXIOUSLY

Image
"In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly". Psalm 5:3
The 1st half of the year is gone and the year is fast coming to an end. So many of us have set goals or placed targets on ourselves to achieve by or before the end of the year. Some of us have achieved some set goals while for some, the waiting is still on as not a single goal or major goal is achieved. The waiting can be boring, tiring and frustrating but the truth is, in life, we are all waiting for one thing or the other.

Even when what you have waited for for so long has come to pass, life still gives you something else to wait on. We are all waiting for something. It's either we are waiting for a dream to be made manifest, job/career, marriage, the coming of a child, a contract, a project to be completed, a…
