Life’s Demands and Expectations

Everyone has escalating demands
Now! Now!

Laundry shouts at me
Wash! Spin! Dry! Hang!

Computer seeks my attention
Beep! Beep!

Emails are calling out to me
Open ME! Read ME!

Child also seek immediate attention
Play with ME! Accompany ME!

Husband expects more
Manage the household! Manage others!

Parents expect serving them
Give immediate help

In laws expect control over me
Jobs providence come

Freelance work client seeks attention
Put client the first

Self-expectation desire to excel in life
Fall short of all

Life’s workload bogs me down
Losing self

True friends come into my life
Angels lift me up

Confusion is cleared
See with more clarity

Discernment enters
Empathy increases

Agree to disagree
Learn to speak indirectly

It began with the first third and eleventh stanza. As I return back to revise further, I pour out more of my overwhelming feelings. Thus the title change from “Life’s workload bogs me down” to “Life’s demands and expectations”. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Seeking God Expectation

An expectation to understand
The Word of God especially in
Spirit, soul and body

Seeking the Lord’s help to
Strengthen my spirit through the Holy Spirit
Enable my spirit, soul and body

Match my body language
According to my spirit
Where my spirit depends in the Holy Ghost

Turning out into a situation
Cell leader and member seek to
Console, comfort and soothe my aching heart

A new believer speaks the wrong words
Immediate response to
Gently explain and she gladly receives

Speaking the truth in love
Comes from the power of the Holy Spirit
Please my Heavenly Father

Hope in the Lord returns
Expecting the Lord’s power in my life
To be strong in Him and love the Lord of my life

In the end, I go to the cell group hoping to understand about the Bible Study topic on “Spirit Soul Body”. I am surprised for my cell leader and member to take the time to understand me through listening. They want me to speak out and manage to understand me on certain issues. Again, she mentions to leave the matter to God and don’t bother about it. I learn to speak out my perspective from the James, “faith without works is dead”. Then they flip to that section and read together. My perspective is to please God and do His will. Care what He cares. Treat others as the way I want to be treated. However, people tend to misunderstand me and say that I am fearful. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Passing by the slogan “expect more” inspires me to understand and fill in the blanks. Thus teach to the conclusion that more expert are necessary to reach to the needed expectations. These led me to reach a questionable conclusion. How to execute my business model to work? Experts are needed though my long term goal is to provide job opportunity for the women to bring their children to work.

Wish you all have good days and thank you.
