We all have expectations in life. From family to employment to friendships, we cycle daily through countless ideas of how people or things “should” act or be. When our expectations are flawed, they can have devastating results. Relationships are strained or destroyed as people detach from families, churches, and communities due to their disappointed expectations. Not So Great Expectations by Christine Deken is an insightful and comprehensive look at these assumptions and the damage they inflict on our lives. Using examples from both the Old and New Testaments, this book examines expectations of people in the Bible as well as contemporary expectations common to everyone, and also includes expectations particular to Christians. In these pages you will discover how to:
Recognize not-so-great expectations
Rehabilitate unhealthy expectations
Replace expectations with hope in God
Inspired by her personal experiences, the author offers tools to help readers renew their minds and put their hope in God, where it belongs. If you are ready to move from disappointment and discouragement to peace and joy, come along on the journey. It’s time to get rid of not-so-great expectations!
