Love Meets Expectations

” Living under expectations is the modern version of living under the law….We tend to equate being loving with meeting expectations….We sabatoge ourselves when we take on expectations because they are simply too much for us to carry. God invites us to trade those demands for the lightness of grace and real love instead.  ”
Holley Gerth from her book You’re Going to be Okay

Dear God,
THANK YOU for authors who encourage us and enlighten us. You created us to share love. You are LOVE.  Free us from human expectations and self striving. Give us patience with ourselves and others. Only You are perfect.  Guilt is law driven…grace is love lived out.  Help us to love our neighbors as ourselves ( Matthew 22:39). Amen.
