Regrets & Expectations

Expectations deal with my thoughts, wants, perceived needs, and hopes for the future. There’s a better than average chance that my expectations will not happen as I expect them. I usually suffer when I operate out of expectations.

If I set expectations low I’m trying to control the outcome and avoid disappointment.

When I have expectations it’s because I’m want my fingers to hold the future, I want to feel like I am closer to what could be, but I’m not, it’s an illusion, no one can do this.

I’d like to learn to show up, and be available to see what God will do. I think he might be teaching me this. When God teaches me it hurts. But when he teaches me, it’s still love.
