    The Gift of Expectancy
    The gift of expectancy with hope is given to those who will seek God with
    all their heart. Ask. Seek. Knock. This is an invitation to know not only the answer to a
    question, but also the Heavenly Father himself. Such a gift comes with the expectancy
    and hope of moving from a dark place into a place of light found in Christ. It is an
    invitation to an arrival; an advent.
