I visited the Moroccon cafe again this morning for a Mary-moment. Just a little time out of my busy life. Just a little time out to refocus.
I just love the atmosphere, the food, the ambience, the decor, everything…
I ordered the same soup I had the previous time – butternut, orange and ginger soup. Beyond delicious!
Why did I order the same soup again? Because it was so nice the previous time. My expectation that it would be good again today, is based on my experience of the previous time. And I wasn’t disappointed.
Sometimes, experience dictates expection. But more often than not, expectation dictates experience. If you enter a new venture with fear of failure, you probably will fail. If you go into something with a negative attitude, the experience will indeed be negative. If you expect the worst to happen, the worst will come. If your thoughts are negative, you life will be negative too.
Proverbs 23:7 – For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.
Has God ever let you down? No, He hasn’t. So why are you fearful? Why are you scared? Why are you worried? Based on your experience of your life up till now, you can enter into any new venture knowing that God will carry you through. Let your experience of God thus far, dictate your expectation. Do not let your fear and unbelief dictate your experience.
