( : Mike’s pretty confident that he passed the cume exam he took this morning. That would make him 4/6.
Wow! The school gives them TWENTY tries. I’m so incredibly proud of all the work he’s doing. I’m also proud of him for his commitment to a healthy lifestyle. We’ve really been doing great, and we’re excited about it. We talked about expectations at small group last Sunday, and I’ve been thinking about it all week.
Do you ever feel like your expectations (for others AND yourself) are just TOO HIGH? I’ve noticed lately that a lot of people aren’t meeting my expectations. I’ve come to the conclusion that the problem probably isn’t with them but with me.
Amazingly, Mike meets my expectations day after day. Of course, I’ve probably just learned what to expect from him. I've just noticed that others seem to fall short of my expectations fairly often.
I know the biggest percentage of the problem is with me, my perception, and my attitude. It’s just an observation and an honest admission of where I’m at right now. I’m really looking forward to our church’s journey of Purpose Driven Life.
I know this could be a major turning point for our church, and I want to see God glorified in what we do. Hopefully we can live up to His expectations. That will be my prayer this week. Please join me and pray for me that I’ll be able to live up to His expectations.
