Expectations–>> One of the biggest reasons hearts become broken & souls become crumbled.
We expect of others so much because of 1. the “candy coated” words they tell us 2. the way they used to be, we wish somehow there will be a redesign, an exact carbon copy of what was, if only for once 3. we THINK people will eventually tire of being childish, trifling, & floating down toward minimal and basic, & instead seek advanced fabulosity.
The fact is–> the only ones we should have expectations for is ourselves & God! We have to believe in ourselves, set our paths, then determine the route.
We expect Him to love us because His love is everlasting. He will be with us always, even until the end of the world. His mercy is unending, unyielding, no favorites, he is THE Alpha & Omega. He is our Provider (Jehova Jireh), He is our Healer (Jehovah Rapha), He is Peace (Jehova Shalom), our friend when no one seems to care. He is the great I Am. He is our source. So why bother with worldly expectations? Love yourself unconditionally, even if tears come & they will. Even when loneliness comes & your world is in shambles, seek Him. He is waiting…
