3 Nephi 12:48

"Therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect."
3 Nephi 12:48

Continuing on the expectations theme... I think that this is beyond cool.  God doesn't just expect us to be cool, he expects us to be perfect.  And that means that it is possible, and that we can be more amazing than we ever imagined that we could be.  God's dreams for us go so far beyond our dreams for ourselves that even if what we wanted for today, or even this year, doesn't happen... we know that something SO much better than we can imagine is in store.  And, you know... I don't even think that it is something that we have to wait to see until after we die.  I think that we can look at God's work in our lives and see that we are better people, even now, then we thought we could be at some point in the past.  God opens our eyes, and our imaginations... and instead of just learning to walk, we learn to soar... and if we can soar already, think of what else he could have in store. :)
