Ephesians 3:14- 4:1
How Do You Define Your Expectations?

Sometimes life throws tragedies at us beyond what we could ever control or influence: the job firing with no avenue of appeal, the breakout of cancer, the vehicle careening into our lane, the child who makes a devastating choice… and more...

With matters like those as true exceptions, I’m going to make the following bold statement:  We get out of life pretty much what we expect to get.   Expectations — and where we get them from — are like a rudder on a ship.  They may seem small — or even be hard to see (ever actually seen a rudder?).  But they determine — literally — everything else.

In our personal and spiritual lives, that’s the bottom line.  As we begin to approach the Dare To Dream series, I want us to look — passionately — at what we really expect out of God.  Not just what we’re “supposed” to believe: but what we really believe.  Because that’s going to determine everything else!   Join us Sunday as we prepare to dig into a life-changing season!  Expect it!
