When God created us, He created us with emotional needs. He designed us with the need for love, respect, security, significance as well as much more. Unfortunately, we tend to try to get our needs met in ways that don’t bring fulfillment and leave us discouraged. Many times it’s the people in our own family or our closest friends who let us down the most. Why does this happen? Can we ever be free of this cycle of trying to get our needs met only to find disappointment instead? In this podcast, “Escaping the Seduction of Expectation,”Toni Hebel will unveil to us the seduction of expectation and how, if left unchecked, can lead us not only to disappointment but also to anger, frustration or depression. We will discover how God intended us to get our needs met and how, when applied, we can experience God in tangible, real ways.
These are some of the questions Toni answers:
- Why am I easily offended or angered?
- Why does it seem that people always let me down?
- How am I supposed to get my emotional needs met?
- How do I get joy back into my life?
- Where did my peace go?
- How can I tangibly experience God in my life?
- Where is my freedom?
