Expectations

Expectations: Storm Cloud (brokenbreadandsmallfish.com)
We followed You
Gladly
to here

Our expectations, our hopes 
Growing every day

You are going to do great things
and we will be part of it.

I thought.
I wanted.
I hoped...

But.
Here we are.
Empty-handed
alone
pressed on all sides
nothing to show

And You
You did not come through.


Why did You let it all come out this way?
it was supposed to go...
differently...

Who will believe You now?
Who will follow You now?
...why have You let us down?

             ~

"How foolish you are
How slow of heart..."  Luke 24:25-26

Wait...

could it be
I'm confusing the middle with the end?


I followed You 
Gladly 
to here.

Will I follow You
still?
Gladly
from here?


Linking up with Velvet Ashes at The Grove where the word this week is "expectations"

  1. Wow, Michele, this is so beautifully raw and vulnerable. You have the heart of a psalmist.
    "Am I confusing the middle with the end?" Oh, how often we do that! Thank you for sharing...

    1. Thank you, Danielle. (Blush.)
      Unfortunately I do confuse the middle with the end way too often. :-0.
