Great Expectations

Expectations lead to disappointment. When we place expectations on how our day should go, how certain things should happen or how we want a person to respond, we are going to be disappointed. 
How much of our lives are we spending mourning over what we thought should have been? Leave your days in your Creator’s hands. Observe and review where and when He shows up even in the simplest things. He is observing you, your comings and goings, your expectations and disappointments, your responses and rehearsals.

Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.

Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.

Leave to thy God to order and provide;

In every change, He faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend

Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake

To guide the future, as He has the past.

Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;

All now mysterious shall be bright at last.

Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know

His voice Who ruled them while He dwelt below.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on

When we shall be forever with the Lord.

When disappointment, grief and fear are gone,

Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored.

Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past

All safe and bless├Ęd we shall meet at last.
