Expectations 1.1


"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" |Romans 3:23|
**
May you freely adjust your expectations, releasing control in order to gain peace. That is, even as you set them, may you be open to adjust or even let them go. 

May you remember that just as you may verbally express your expectations, it isn't a guarantee that they will get fulfilled. 

May you remember that threats, anger and resentment are not the healthiest nor are they an effective way to get what you need. 
There are moments that'll call for you to release your expectations completely. Be wise. Fewer words are better than many. At this juncture, strive to locate something to be grateful for. 

Take a moment to examine whether other peoples' expectations for you are your expectations for you.
Is your expectation for them their expectation for themselves? 

Do not stew over your disappointment. Acknowledge your disappointment, and let it go. Disappointment quickly turns to resentment, and that lingers beneath the surface for a long time if you do not let go.

This is not to say do not set expectations. It is wise to have and set standards, but just as you cannot always dictate your environment, you cannot have your way all the time. Even in common sense situations. 

Leave room for God to do his perfect work. 

And above all, may you receive grace from our Lord Jesus Christ.
