Today I hear the phrase that something felt “ripe with anticipation,” and I realize that’s a wonderful feeling to cultivate.
You wake up, eagerly expecting the marvelous blessings of God–often disguised–awaiting you.
You wake up nearly bursting because of the day’s possibilities.
This very moment might be seen as ripe with anticipation. So I cultivate that sense and I know–like the Israelites in Joshua 3:5–that something’s coming. Joshua says, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”
