I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…
EXPECTATIONS… ex·pec·ta·tion ˌekspekˈtāSH(ə)n/ noun –
1) a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future
2) a belief that someone will or should achieve something
When we place expectations on another, that they are not possibly capable of achieving, we are setting ourselves up for failure. Allow your loved ones to be for you what they are capable of, not what you expect them to be. Your relationship with Jesus and Holy Spirit will cultivate the presence of God and in turn, the light in you will grow and will start to shine into the areas that you are needing; whether that be love, attention, affection, understanding, etc…
In life, our loved ones were never meant to be our gods or our all and all, like the world teaches us. Marriage/ Parents/ Children/ Family & Friends WERE NOT MEANT to replace our relationship with God, Jesus & Holy Spirit. Relationship with God WAS MEANT to be a union where we are built up in Christ, by Holy Spirit, in our most holy faith.
When we start looking at all of the things our loved ones aren’t doing for us, all the things we think they should say, do, be, then we are expecting things from another that they quite possibly can not accomplish. Not because they don’t want to, but because our loved one was never meant to be our first go to, for resolve in every matter.
When we take those same expectations and place them on the one that can actually handle our needs, wants, desires, etc… we place ourselves in a position to receive all the fulness of and in Christ. True freedom comes once we realize that God is the only one that is capable of handling it ALL.
#UNCHNED in relationship with God, getting to know HIS CHARACTER, HIS NATURE, HIS WILL, HIS PURPOSE, HIS PLAN
In His Love, A-M 😉
