To love is to risk. I set up expectations of people I love whether I mean to or not. The more I love, the more expectations I have. I sense it when those expectations are not met and I feel like I’ve been let down. It’s something that annoys me about myself. I want to love without expectation. I want to love freely and not let people down or feel like they let me down.
I love God, I pray, I come to him with the things that weigh on my heart. When he doesn’t answer the way I think he should that can make me feel like he let me down. I don’t understand why God chooses to not do things that seem obviously right to me. But I know that he can see more than I can and that he can give me the strength I need to go through those tough times. I know that my risk is higher if I don’t love because then I am truly all alone. Has God ever let you down?
