Unexpected Expectations


When I FOCUS on "me, myself & I"

I always come up short

as I can never & I will never

be able to meet all my EXPECTATIONS

When I FOCUS on others

they will always come up short

as they can never & they will never

be able to meet all my EXPECTATIONS.

Most of the time we don't even know that we are placing

EXPECTATIONS,

until our EXPECTATIONS are not met.

EXPECTATION~

"a belief that someone will or should achieve something" (Oxford).

No one can ever meet all our EXPECTATIONS

as we can't even meet our own,

because we all have them~

CHARACTER FLAWS~

because we are all human and humans are born with them.

Oh how GOD

stopped me in my tracks

when something so little happened

that it ruffled my feathers.

But in that moment I heard HIS soft whisper speaking to my heart~

"FOCUS ON MY CHARACTER".

Hmm....

GOD'S FLAWLESS CHARACTER~

GOD is PATIENT

GOD is KIND

GOD does NOT ENVY

GOD does NOT BOAST

GOD is NOT PROUD

GOD is NOT RUDE

GOD is NOT SELF~SEEKING

GOD is NOT EASILY ANGERED

GOD keeps NO RECORD OF WRONGS

GOD does NOT DELIGHT IN EVIL

Because

GOD rejoices with the TRUTH

GOD ALWAYS PROTECTS

GOD ALWAYS TRUSTS

GOD ALWAYS PERSEVERES

because

GOD NEVER FAILS (based on I Corinthians 13:4-8).

For GOD'S CHARACTER meets all my EXPECTATIONS & all your EXPECTATIONS

so why even waste our energy on trying to meet our own.

Oh how GOD is always getting my attention when I lose

FOCUS.

So Let's LOOK UP & RE~FOCUS

& "TURN OUR EYES TO JESUS" (listen to the song below)
