Expecting too much

Sometimes we expect things too much out of man (or woman). Expecting too much out of this world.
And most of the time when we do, we eventually get disappointed because everything is not the way we wanted it to be.
This is why we should leave everything up to God and we should know that He will give the BEST for us. Because we know that His love for us is so great.
Why should we expect things from this world when we know that it’s going to backfire?
When we put everything in God’s hands, put our worries and desires, put our faith and trust - there will be less disappointments in our lives because God will never disappoint us.
God will give us peace. Hope. Love.
“The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him” (Nahum 1:7).
Sometimes we think we know what’s best for us. Maybe even push through so many things like yelling at our parents that they don’t understand! That your relationship with someone (like a boyfriend or girlfriend) is meant to be, and you don’t care what they think.
We usually don’t care what others think because we just want happiness, wanting to satisfy our worldly needs.
That happiness won’t last. Whatever it is you’re going through - whether it is a relationship, a struggle with a job, school or study, family troubles, etc - leave it up to God and do not expect more out of your self. Do not rely on your own choices, nor other man (or woman) before consulting it unto God.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5,6).
