A water line broke on our street and we’ve been without water much of the day. I expect water to be available for daily tasks and am so disappointed when it’s not. It’s amazing how something mindlessly expected can disrupt our daily lives when it’s not there.
Sometimes I expect more from my family and friends than they can provide and I become disappointed. Sometimes I don’t live up to my own expectations. But that’s alright, we are not perfect. And this is something I must remember in order to forgive.
It is comforting to know that God forgives me and carries my burdens, and I can expect Christ to abide with me forever.
Come, thou long-expected Jesus.
