Psalms 62:5

"My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him."
Psalms 62:5

I think that this scripture is really interesting, the part about expectation from God.  I think that a lot of times we try to live up to expectations from everywhere else... wear what people think we should... eat what people think that we should, act like people think we should... and sometimes, if we have really good people around us, then we end up doing pretty good things, and sometimes it turns out pretty bad.  Either way though, we shouldn't be living up to, or even worrying about the expectations of other people, who are just as human as we are.  We should be living up to the expectations that God has for us.  He expects us to be heroic.  He expects us to be amazing and good.  He expects us to be a lot better than we think that we can be.  And, just like in most earthly situations, we usually are able to live up to what people expect from us. :)  Let's try not to listen to the voices that tell us that we aren't good enough, and listen to God... who knows that we are, and who can make us even better. :)
