rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
This was a very honest book about the longings that we all feel as humans. Dealing with disappointments and unfulfilled expectations is part of life and how we handle them reveals our values and worldview. Learning to view things through biblical truth rather than our own perceptions helps to handle these longings in a way that honors God.
This book was timely for me in dealing with the stresses of failed expectations and not being able to control how things turn out. So often I respond with anger when things don't go the way I want them to. Yet life is full of unfulfilled longings and desires. Learning to let go of expectations that aren't met the way I would want is part of the growth and maturity process.
