expect joy & goodness
before backpacking trips leave basecamp for their time on trail, everyone (guide + high schoolers + Young Life leaders) sit down to share their fears & expectations for the week. guides write them down, leave them at basecamp, and we, as a staff, pray for every fear & every expectation every day of the week.
last week I was praying for a girl who had the expectations of JOY and GOODNESS.
those are incredible things to expect because we are guaranteed them from the Holy Spirit. I don’t know the depth of this girl or the depth of her relationship with the Lord, but I know she is right. on Sunday, we was expecting joy and goodness during her week.
why am I not expecting those for my week on Sundays?
