Great Expectations – Overcoming Disappointment (Crumbs)

Expectation

“If you expect nothing, you can never be disappointed.
Apart from a few starry-eyed poets or monks living on a mountaintop somewhere, however, we all have expectations. We not only have them, we need them. They fuel our dreams, our hopes, and our lives like some super-caffeinated energy drink.” Tonya Hurley, Homecoming

  Martin Luther King        “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” Martin Luther King

attitude2

“Your attitude is an expression of your values, beliefs and expectations.”  Brian Tracy

 courage2

 “As it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.” Philippians 1:20 ESV

      hope2       “For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.” Psalm 62:5 ESV

looking up

“I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.”  Charles R. Swindoll

open door

“Raise your head up. Go forward believing; look up and expect the answers to happen, and leave them to the power of the will of God. If your dreams don’t come true, don’t get depressed and most of all, don’t lose hope. Always remember that God may be preparing a better dream for you to fulfill. Remember also that in every failure and success there is always a reason. When God closes one door, He opens another.” Regina Malabago

“Disappointment is inevitable. Discouragement is optional.” ELW
