Every Monday we are focusing on Greater Expectations from God. This is post three of that series. Find the others at the bottom of the Home page here.
Last week we talked about the conception of expectation from God. We addressed the many times in the scriptures that promises were conceived in the dark.
This week let’s begin to discuss what can block conception.
After a certain amount of time what God has promised begins to grow in your Spirit as it is acknowledged. However, before it ever reaches that stage we have to be able to conceive.
Throughout scripture there are different ways the knowledge of promise was received and revealed.
Different people of biblical times can teach us so much about conception of promise and expectation. Those we will be focusing on are Zechariah, Elizabeth, Mary, Hannah, Sarah, Abraham, Rebekah, Jochebed, Samson’s mother and father, David, Bathsheba, John the Baptist, and Paul.
In no particular order their stories give us insight about ourselves and the One who enables us to conceive, expect, and delivers on the promises, but we will start with Hannah.

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.
I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.
Blessings to you and yours,
