Expecatations

Expectations are high when we are young.
The possibilities are endless.
The world is at our fingertips.

In the developmental stages, family of origin, experiences, and circumstances beyond our control start to mold and shape us.
Discouragement to pursue dreams comes from family being logical and realistic.
In reality, their discouragement has led to disappointment in their lives; because their expectations to succeed in their dreams were not met.
Discouragement is negativity from unresolved pain in their hearts spoken in advice throughout an innocent life.
As a result, expectations gradually fade.

As an adult, life does not happen the way we planned.
Problems and setbacks happen.
Our plans and goals for our life seem to appear farther and farther away.
Faith in God is tested, and if we are not careful, we may start to believe the issues of life are bigger than our faith in God.
As a result, our faith in Him will become smaller.
Then, expectations are minute.

In His Grace, He begins to change our perspective.
We start to see through His Eyes.
With the faith of a child, we start to believe again He has a plan for our lives.
Then our expectations are solely in Him.
With this transformation, His Expectations becomes our own.

In life, an epiphany is realized.
An understanding is reached in knowing in your heart that all that matters are His expectations are being lived out through me.
An understanding is reached in knowing that God did not create us to please people, but to please only Him for His Pleasure.
At the end of the day, what was said and done to us by people does not matter; because it will work out for my good and His Glory.
People will always have something to say, but the only opinion that truly matters in His.
There is freedom in knowing we will be unable to live out the expectations of people in our sphere of influence.

With His Guidance, His Expectations will be fulfilled with the plans He has preordained for our lives.
With His Sovereignty, the future will be better than the past; because His Expectations will be met in and through us.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
