The Prison of Expectations

Woman 1: He has no idea what romance is.

Woman 2: Would it hurt her to call once in a while?

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Our expectations of people can be like a prison.

Woman 1: When it comes to romance, he’s got no clue.

Dannah Gresh: This is Seeking Him, with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.

Nancy: People will never fully meet our expectations. Perhaps you feel like someone has consistently let you down. Maybe it’s time to give up your expectations of how they should serve you and focus instead on how you can serve them.

I remember having a hard time loving a certain individual in my life. A turning point came when I decided to release them from my idea of how they should love me. The relationship started to heal once I repented of my lovelessness and let God fill me with His love.

Is there someone locked in the prison of your expectations? Ask God to show you how to focus on meeting their needs rather than your own.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
