It’s hard to know what expectations you have until they’re not met. (Jeff Redland, college campus pastor)
Sometimes we really don’t know what our expectations are for a certain situation. We want a happy outcome, but what will that look like? When the time comes, however, we realize that we were expecting something quite different. We couldn’t have put our thumb on it, but now we know what we really wanted. Be realistic in your expectations to avoid disappointment.
Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly (Psalm 5:3).
