Middle School- Great Expectations- Day 15
Expectations have a way of making us strive for perfection. Whether they’re our own expectations or the expectations of others, trying to meet them only seems to leave us anxious and feeling like a failure. Why? Because perfection just isn’t possible! But the good news is, God isn’t asking us to be perfect. He isn’t asking us to strive and struggle to meet every expectation. In fact, He’s asking us to do just the opposite. God has already given us everything we need to be the kind of people we want to be. All we have to do is ask for His help. God sets us free from the weight of expectations, and invites us to simply rest in Him. This week, ask God to help you find comfort in knowing that you are enough just as you are. Ask for His strength to help you as you walk through your life.
