Banished Expectations

Art Series #2

This is an issue that I feel like plagues many people, especially girls, but is not addressed nearly enough. Expectations. Expectations and all the lies, lists, masks and worries that come with them. We feel that there is so much expected of us—how to look, act, speak, smile. How to achieve, receive and look at people.

The world tells us we are too much and not enough, all at the same time.

Wait—how does this even make sense? How can we be both at once?

The better question is how can we believe that? Why do we believe that?

The thing is, we don’t have to anymore. The One Who Came to Save has sent His Son. Just for you, just for me.

All this weight that we tend to hold on our shoulders, expectations we strive towards, the masks we feel we have to hide behind, the lies we adopt as truths—they ARE all SHATTERED by Christ.

How do we break through all of these things that cover us? By being whom we were made to be—


It’s a verb.

Art is what happens when you dare to be who you really are.

Who God made you to be.

You’re His.

There are no more expectations, lies, fear, worries, and masks to hide behind—

Only love to fall into. 

Romans 8:28 and 8:38
