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
until our EXPECTATIONS are not met.
"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~
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".
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
GOD rejoices with the TRUTH
GOD ALWAYS PROTECTS
GOD ALWAYS TRUSTS
GOD ALWAYS PERSEVERES
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
So Let's LOOK UP & RE~FOCUS
& "TURN OUR EYES TO JESUS" (listen to the song below)
