“What you anticipate, you experience…”

“What you anticipate, you experience…”

Ben and I met with a couple over dinner last Saturday night and we were so encouraged by the words spoken over that meal.  Two lines were said that I honestly have always believed, but to hear it spoken out loud by another human being made me believe this perspective that much more.  It made me come alive again.  It sparked something in my heart.  The two lines were ” What you anticipate, you experience” and “You get what you expect.”

Over the years I have found this to be true.  Not only in my life but in the lives of those around me.  A lot of times, it is extremely easy to focus on the wrong that is occurring, the lack that we are experiencing, the pain that is real.  At the same time it is so incredibly powerful and effective to take where you are now and think about where you actually want to be.  Declaring and believing that although you are currently not where you want to be, that you don’t have to stay stuck there and in your thoughts and your prayers you have the power to be apart of changing outcomes.  I have made it a habit to speak things out loud that are not yet so, as if they were, and have made prayer and active part of my everyday life.  Immediate change is not always evident, but my overall spirit and mindset manages to stay uplifted as a result.  What a man believes he is.  It says in Proverbs “For as he thinketh in his heart, so he is…” Prov. 23:7  It has become more and more clear that the thoughts I think and the words that I say have the power to affect the course of my life.  Positivity is powerful.  Let us choose our thoughts and are words wisely.  Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!!

    You need to definitely take me shopping with you at Marshalls because you so much luck. I’m going to take God with me next time. He’ll help me find something. I’m so great.
