Expectations

My child, you burden yourself with way too many expectations.
They are stealing away your joy.

My child, you make them way too high for yourself.
You are just a little boy.

My child, I don’t expect you to always be first,
fastest, or the best.

My child, calm down and relax,
In Me, you can rest.

My child–Please, you need to know
Your value is not based on what you do.

My child, all I’ve ever wanted
is for you to know—

I LOVE YOU.

Love,
Jesus

  4. Beautiful, simple, perfect verse. With your permission, I’d like to copy it. I think each of my children, and their mother, need to have this on their wall for a daily reminder! Thank you for sharing on NOBH!
