A thought about expectations...
It's ok to expect:
God to keep His promises,
God to work good for you
in every situation.
You can expect God
never to fail you,
never to leave you,
never to forsake you
or give up on you.
Even if you fail Him
or act in disobedience
you can expect Him
to be faithful,
kind, and forgiving.
He is loving and all powerful,
He is fearcly protective
of all His children
He guards us,
adores us,
is hurt when we hurt,
rejoices when we rejoice,
intercedes when we are week
and always hopes the best for us.
It's ok to expect God
to bring about His will
and to redeem every situation.
Expectations are only safe
if you trust God to do His will,
and if you expect to
not understand everything
He's doing.

I need to cry
to hide away and weep
no need to explain
things I don't understand.
Complete release,
love flowing down,
tears poured out,
washing my soul
cleansing my heart.
His love mixed with mine,
flows to the river of life,
setting me free,
carrying me along.
in the river
of His love.
More at rest under
than above...
Longing to fill my lungs
with His air.
Holding my breath,
refusing to take in
what this world is offering.
Spurgeon said:
Tears are the diamonds of heaven.
Oh my wise friend,
Does Jesus value
what the world calls weak?
I know He does.
they hoard their little treasures,
to their demise.
Lord you long to melt their hearts
and give them gold that lasts...
Gold so common to you
it paves your streets...
Oh, Lord,
most profound to me,
is that you wept...
That human sorrow,
broke your heart,
and caused you to morn.
My glorious Lord.
That you bend down
and listen,
is so precious.
My dearest friend,
one day,
I know,
we'll cry our last tears
and rejoice,
in the reunion of souls,
meant to be together.
I long for that day.
May I never stop
yearning for that day.
May I never treasure
this worlds offerings
over your worship.
My glorious God and King.
