In discussing expectations, we must first distinguish whom we are placing our expectations on. Is it people or God? When we have too much hope in people, a lot of the time we will be disappointed. People don’t always meet our needs or appreciate us like they should. You see humans are not fool proof, in other words they will make mistakes. In order to keep our joy and hope, we must place our expectations in God. For a lot of us, we need to start going to God and tell Him what we need and quit trying to get it from people. God wants to have a relationship with each of us; he wants to hear our wants and needs. With that said, we must be patient and know that our timing is not Gods timing. Be content in God and pray BOLD prayers. So are your expectations realistic?
* But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40: 31
