I was reading a post I wrote previously about expectations and thought I needed to write about it again, but this time concerning relationships. It started me to thinking about how for years, I contemplated moving because I felt that someone was encouraging me to do so, and this was about the hope of a possibility of being in a relationship. lol I finally admitted that was what my move was about, here on this blog.
When I reread my post about expectation, I realized that not only did I have expectations that were not met, but someone else did too and then I had to chuckle because we are truly at an impasse. I have thought about it long and hard and yes we all have expectations.
I was thinking about how I wrestled with moving for YEARS and every time I seriously thought about doing it, something would creep up that was a huge red flag. Since then, that red flag situation grew to the point where I realize had I moved, it would have been the biggest mistake ever. All I can say it THANK GOD for the stop signs.
The truth of the matter is it was NEVER in God’s plan for me to move without an equal commitment. You see, this has not been the first time someone has moved for this very same reason and it ended in disaster. I remember receiving subtle “encouragements” from someone about moving and fasting a praying and God spoke loud and clear. God said ” You are the one, this is the place and now is the time” and then the minister said “you don’t have to go to that city either and he named the EXACT city I was considering moving to. I knew then God was going to do this in a different way.
I pretty much know what God is saying so when I had to move out my house I never seriously considered moving to that city because again God said “this is the place all of your prophecies are going to come to pass”. My only regret is that I kept telling someone and all of you that I was moving when that was not how God is going to do this. But live and learn.
When God does all that He promised, it’s going to be HIM ALONE who did it. It won’t be a work of someones fleshly desire, or any form of manipulations. Honestly, with this impasse, ONLY GOD can do it now!
So I am not the only one with expectations that are NOT going to be met. But that is okay. As long as God’s expectations and Will is done, I’m okay with it!
