The One Where I Expect Good Things

Expect Good Things Poster

Hey you guys, TGIF amiright!!! And it’s time for another Five Minute Friday link-up. I hope this week was productive for you and if it wasn’t, I hope that at least it was well spent. The word prompt this week is EXPECT.

Of course you can join in too. The rules are pretty simple – write for 5 minutes on the word prompt for the week and post to your blog, then add your post to the linky party over at the Five Minute Friday community.

aaaand setting timer now…


Expect Good Things.

When life seems hard.

When you start doubting the path that you’re on.

When the way forward may not seem clear.

When you start thinking that maybe, just maybe, you are doing this whole adulting thing all wrong.

The minute you wake up and realize that you’re still in the land of the living.

Because you stand on His word, and He came so that you can have life and live it to the fullest.

Just because.

Expect Good Things.

Expect Good Things.

Expect Good Things.


Today’s post is brought to you by this online timer I just found. Feel free to check it out here. 

It is amazing to me, what comes up when you only have five minutes to write. I’m cheating a bit and adding these extra words, because I wanted to put this week’s response in context.

This has been an especially hard week for me. The minute I read today’s word, the first words that came to me was “expect good things” and I have been repeating it to myself over and over since.

And I will repeat it until I believe it.

‘I have come that they may have life and may have if abundantly.’ ~ John 10:10 

Stand on His word. Expect Good Things.

    lol, I just left you a blog comment on my blog in response to yours w/John 10:10 reference and then read it over here! 🙂 I LOVE that!!!

    “When you start thinking that maybe, just maybe, you are doing this whole adulting thing all wrong….expect good things.” Thank you for this reminder! Have felt that way a lot this week! Why do rush to be adults and then we get here and adulting isn’t what we thought it’d be?!

    I have learnt what you want in life, expect. But also know answers to our desires come in three ways; we get it either when or before we ask, we get it a later period, or in different way. But we get exactly what we expect, we get what we focus on. I concur; expect good things.
