Insights from a Glory-Bound Lady”
Volume 1 Number 11 “Looking up with Expectancy” June 21, 2018
Many things attracted me to Karen throughout our years in public school. The greatest of these was certainly her love for the Lord Jesus and her reverence for Him. As we grew in our relationship together, I had the best seat in the house to watch her growing in her walk with Him as well as her worship of Him. From her Bible study notes, I found the following wonderful notes in Karen’s Bible study journal.
“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto Thee, and will look up” (Psalm 5:3).
Karen wrote: “And will look up” with expectancy! It is important to:
1. Establish a daily time with the Lord.
2. Spend time in His Word.
3. Pray for specific needs of others and self.
4. Listen. Be still before the Lord and praise Him.
Michael’s observation: Karen not only underlined Psalm 5:3 in her Bible, she circled the last four words of the verse, “and will look up” drew a line from the circle to the margin and wrote the word “EXPECTATION.” Sure she had discouragements. There were times that she didn’t understand. But I can testify that she had a consistent expectancy that started early in the morning. One more thing, she was a morning person in every sense of the word. As soon as I opened one eye, she was ready for conversation! As for me, not so much! We laughed often about this.
