Let’s talk about expect amazing in regards to our dreams and visions.
Those two words expect amazing sound like music to our ears, right? You almost want to just sit in your favorite chair and wait for a knock on your door from a person named Amazing. Of course, Amazing would be a very influential person who has the capabilities and connections we need to answer all of our dreams. The more I think about it the better it sounds, but then again it’s kind of illogical!
It’s about as illogical as the thought of suing Weight Watchers because you expected to look exactly like Jennifer Hudson who was the spokeswoman for the “expect amazing” campaign. Could you imagine being asked in a court of law, “Did you follow the program?...Did you change your eating habits?...Did you put in hard work by exercising? And you answer, “No, but I sat in every meeting for a year and I expect amazing…I expected to be looking like Jennifer Hudson!” Doesn’t that sound illogical to you? (Remember, I am a writer with a vivid imagination you’ll have to work with me through some of my blogging!)
Anyway, there are some things in our snapshots where we expect amazing from God sitting in our favorite chair (comfort zones). We sit and we literally expect amazing to drop from the Heaven into our laps. (I admit I was guilty of this at one time!) We look at our snapshot; we have enormous dreams and visions and expect amazing yet we don’t “follow God’s program,” “we aren’t willing to change,” and “we seem allergic to hard work!” We sit and wait for opportunity to knock on our door. I like what author Bob Gass said, “Stop waiting for opportunity. Opportunity is the breath in your body and the strength of your mind. If you use your God-given gifts wisely there’s no telling how far you’ll go. But you must be a “doer”!”
I encourage you (and myself) to become participants in God’s plan for your life, work the dreams and visions He has deposited into our hearts out and expect amazing!
