Waiting with Great expectations

My expectations are high because I have confidence in a god who Still does miracles, who still wants to give me the desires of my heart, & whose ears are open when I cry out. I have confidence in Him alone. I am eagerly waiting on him, knowing he has great things in store for me, for this baby, for my birth.

Psalm 37

1 Do not fret because of evildoers,

Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and
feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself in the LORD,
He shall give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring
it to pass.
6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—
it only causes harm.

9 For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the LORD,
They shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it
shall be no more.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the
abundance of peace.

16 A little that a righteous man has
Is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
But the LORD upholds the righteous.

18 The LORD knows the days of the upright,
And their inheritance shall be forever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,
And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish;
And the enemies of the LORD,
Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.
Into smoke they shall vanish away.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the LORD shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they
trust in Him.
