come expecting

Now Peter and John were going up together to the temple complex at the hour of prayer at three in the afternoon. And a man who was lame from birth was carried there and placed every day at the temple gate called Beautiful, so he could beg from those entering the temple complex.
When he saw Peter and John about to enter the temple complex, he asked for help. Peter, along with John, looked at him intently and said, “Look at us.”
So he turned to them, expecting to get something from them.
But Peter said, “I don’t have silver or gold, but what I have, I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”
Then, taking him by the right hand he raised him up, and at once his feet and ankles became strong. So he jumped up, stood, and started to walk, and he entered the temple complex with them—walking, leaping, and praising God.
Acts 3:1-8
How many times can one do something before it becomes routine?  common?  ordinary?
I am not for sure of the answer, but I know one thing:  every time I am able to come to Bible Memory Camp, I know God will show up.
If He is seen is up to each individual.
I was reminded tonight during staff worship to come, expecting God.
Tonight, I find myself wanting more than God's blessing upon our camp.  I want Him...His presence like never before among us.
Ordinary just will not do.
