Unrealistic Expectations

“I don’t think that we take seriously, the drama of the fallenness of our world. That fallenness will enter your door. If you’re not suffering now, you’re near somebody who is. And if you’re not suffering now, you will someday. And the expectation that suffering will be part of my experience, I don’t think is regular for people.”                  Paul Tripp –  Suffering Reveals Our Unrealistic Expectations

 

“God has not promised me a comfortable life. He has promised me Himself. And to think that if God is faithful, my life will be comfortable, is dramatically unrealistic.”  Paul Tripp

 

“What happens in suffering is you will then mourn the death of what you thought you could depend on. What you thought was true. Actually those things weren’t true, and that is what is being proven in your suffering…” Paul Tripp

Stay blessed in Christ,   10 But [a]may the God of all grace, who called [b]us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, [c]perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5:10-11 NKJV
