I'm expecting...


I am NOT expecting a BABY...

But I've been thinking about what I DO expect...
from people.

Sometimes I expect too much.
The kinda thing where I'm thinking they're do
this & that and when they don't
I'm disappointed & frustrated.
(I forgot to give them the "script" of our friendship...
how dare they not be able to read my mind.)

Sometimes I expect too little.
The kinda thing were I just figure the other person
is probably gunna take the easy way, the wrong way,
and let me down. So I put up my defenses and hold
them at a distance so it won't hurt when they, of course,
let me down.

Both kinds are WRONG!

My love for Jesus should fill me with kindness & compassion
so that I'm understanding & considerate. (Colossians 3:12-14)

His love should give me courage to look for the best in others
and learn to "hope for all things" good. (1 Corinthians 13:7)

My expectations are changing.
I'm expecting myself to expect the BEST & LOOK for it..
