Expanding Our Expectancy

When we wake up in the morning and remember some good thing is planned to happen during the day, it is a pleasure to get going. The light seems brighter; the routine tasks are less burdensome; our feet have wings.

Expectancy of good is an important factor in our lives. It exerts a powerfully uplifting and expanding influence over us— that is, it does if it is God-inspired, for then it sets up a high goal of spiritual accomplishment and promises that with honest effort we can attain it. Expectancy provides a healthy focus for our activity, hastens our progress toward true satisfaction and happiness, and makes life vital and worthwhile. If we seem to be going through a hard time—a tunnel experience of human existence—it provides light at the end to cheer us on.
