What happens when our expectations for others go unfulfilled? How does this affect our outlook on our relationships, our dreams, our hopes, and our aspirations? And what in the world do we do with the ensuing disappointment?
Because, more often than not, our expectations are the driving force that moves us from freedom to captivity, from prioritizing our love for God and our neighbors towards an imprisonment to our own desires, fears, and anxieties. We become so bound by expectations that we're unable to hear the truth Jesus offers us: there is another way, a better way… a way rooted in sitting before the Savior who fulfills all our desires and longings.
