Expectation ALWAYS Crushes Hope
To hope is good. To expect is better. I read that on a church billboard on my way home
and the truth of it struck me SO clearly.
Our Universe responds to our thoughts, our energy and yes, our expectations. Expectation includes CERTAINTY.
Hope is usually an attempt to exclude DOUBT.
We HOPE we get the job (mixed in is fear we WON’T).
We HOPE the check
arrives in time (but it MAY not).
We HOPE there are no more terrorist attacks and mass shootings (but we can’t be CERTAIN).
We EXPECT the sun to rise tomorrow. (It
We EXPECT our paychecks on payday (iffier, but still a fairly solid bet).
We EXPECT our refrigerators to be right
were we left them this morning (clear winner here).
What we EXPECT we EMPOWER with our own energy and faith and because there is no doubt, we help create it or continue it.
MIRACLES have to be EXPECTED not HOPED FOR.
