Drawing a Distinction Between Desires and Expectations
Standing at the altar, we all had a picture of what our marriage would look like. The problem is this picture of marriage results in expectations that we unload on our spouse. The weight of these expectations can rob your marriage of love and joy. As a spouse you never feel like you measure up and you never feel like you are good enough. So what are you to do with your expectations? You can't deny them, because most expectations started out as God-given desires.
In this 3-part series, Andy Stanley draws a distinction between desires and expectations, and explains how you can improve your marriage by bringing God into the middle of it.
This is a paperback participant guide. It includes discussion questions for individuals and/or small groups, between-session devotions, DVD session overviews, and a leader's guide.
