Start each day with expectancy, not expectations. (Gloria Gaither, songwriter)

Gaither continues, “If we start today with expectations, we will almost certainly be disappointed.” But if we live with expectancy, we may find things to be much more pleasing. If you attend a movie or concert and your expectations are not met, you will be disappointed. Start you day with hopeful expectancy and you might be surprised how well the day goes.

Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly (Psalm 5:3).
