I am still learning how to live outside of transactional love—how to deactivate these expectations. 😮💨
Cuz it’s really not people who hurt you most times.
It’s the expectation of how you want them to be, how you want them to see you, how you want to be treated. You know: the broken places in your life. The empty spaces of your heart. The things you silently demand that aren’t for other people to fulfill. These are the breaks, the deferred hopes that make your heart sick. You want something from people that they aren’t equipped to do for themselves—much less for you. You set them up on pedestals and weep when they fall…having the audacity to SET THEM BACK UP THERE cracks and all as though the pedastal you built will make them be what you set them up to be.
That’s not how any of this works. That’s insane.
Mind transformation is still required😩
The only place you can lay this stuff is at Jesus feet and hold on to the horn of salvation. He IS the God of your salvation. He is the Lord of your breakthrough (Baal Perizim), crashing through every wall and tearing down every stronghold locking you in place. This is the cross of Christ I keep coming back to, dying daily to unrealistic expectations. Tearing down hopes built on sinking sand and rebuilding everything—EVERYTHING on Christ, the solid rock.
All other ground is sinking sand.🙌🏾
How firm a foundation is that unfailing and everlasting love? How full and unyielding is His faithfulness to me? When I love above, on the earth, and even below, there can be found none to compare. There is NONE like Him. God’s will be done; that’s my testimony and I’m sticking to it.
It’s the nevertheless for me.
