Hopelessness and waiting

I have expectations. They go unmet. I have a will. It gets crossed. Circumstances. Decisions. Other people. I can’t control any of it.

Pride is involved. My sense of worth. What people think of me.

And the whole matter of waiting. Waiting to find out. Waiting to move. Waiting to get. Waiting to do. Waiting to receive.

Even waiting for hope. For the strength to keep going, especially when expectations and plans don’t work out.

I’m a husband and father, follower of Jesus Christ, and member of the Moody Publishers team. I've worked with gifted authors and their books for thirty-plus years, and I believe the local church is where we become the kind of people who reveal what Jesus is like. Since this is my personal blog, the views and opinions expressed herein are my own, not those of my employer. However — books, publishing, the work of the church, and learning to follow Jesus are central to my daily experience, so that's what this blog is about. Thanks for visiting! Paul
