A Feeling Of Anticipation

"Anticipation" by American illustrat...

I have not been able to shake a feeling the last couple of days.  And feelings being what they are – “feelings” – I have tried to push it down and ignore it.

Last night it had an ever-growing intensity – I was not feeling well either so that might have contributed to this – uh – feeling – but I’m not sure.  My stomach was jumpy and I could actually feel anticipation.

There have only been a couple of times that I have felt like this.  It’s the feeling that I get when somebody is about to jump out at me – saying “BOO” – or when I am looking at some daunting task before me – and need to “jump in” or “jump off” as it were.   The same feeling in my stomach – in preparation for it to lurch and dance around.

But since I have no reason to feel this way – and certainly not last night – it’s been a little unnerving.  Life is pretty calm here these days.  Oh like everyone else – I have some unresolved issues with a friend and have not been able to put that to right – as of yet – and there are some other issues – but nothing that has not been there before.  It is nothing new in my world.  Things are calm – if not totally resolved or finished.  And yet...I feel it.  Ever building.  Ever present.  Anticipation.

In my spirit I can feel something – I’m just not sure what it is.  But there is a whisper of hope – a whisper of anticipation with that hope.  And although it is scary – the dark unknown – it makes me smile.

Do you suppose that things are about to change – for the better in issues that I have had no control over?  Things that I was sure were hopeless and unresolvable?  Or are “feelings” just feelings.  Does God whisper to you in your spirit – something you just can’t shake?

When was the last time you had a “feeling” you couldn’t shake?  A feeling of anticipation?  Did you ever find out the reason for it, later?

One of my favorite Carly Simon songs is called “Anticipation” – here it is for you to listen to – Enjoy and God Bless!
