I was driving down the street today and my mind was camping around expectations in this newest season of life~my expectations of myself, the expectations of others of what a "good life and productive life" should be, expectations of society of what is "the thing to do" with your life. As usual my thoughts were becoming quite conflicted and overwhelming on the topic, feeling pulled this way and that.
Suddenly, I felt God telling me that all of those "other" expectations were not what I should be considering. I saw a vision of my grandkids Doodle Pro (new version of the old Etch-a-Sketch). The Doodler has a bar along the side, when slidden across, erases the content of the board. I saw scribbles all over the little pink Doodler, representative of "expectations", and then the bar slid across, all content gone, the board cleared and it was like God was telling me,
Now let's start with My vision for you for this season, the path I have for you".
