What does a life look like when we expect it to be limited? Logan Wolfram says that when we live with a limited view of our life, it hampers our view of the truth of God.
“When you’re expecting everything to be limited you are not excited. What do you have to look forward to if you think everything you step into is just going to end up limited?””
A limited point of view not only influences our the joy and excitement we may experience, but also limits our view of God and other people.
“We don’t expect the best out of other people. We don’t believe that good things can be for us and we’re waiting for the shoe to drop on every single thing that we do.”
“When we can’t believe that there is a great good God who loves us, that has this possibility for us, we begin to live with such a limited perspective.”
More often than not this limited view of life is rooted in fear.
“Fear defines the way that we’re moving forward, because we’re afraid of believing something good for us. Which means that really what we are afraid of is that something bad happening. We begin to be defined by fear instead of curiosity and faith to follow what God has for us.”
For many of us, fear of disappointment keeps us in a place of disappointment. This fear is the driving force in our lives that prompts us to do some things and avoid others. As Christians, Logan reminds us the importance of being more curious about what God could do than afraid of what He might not do.
“I got more curious when I realized that the broken things didn’t tear me to shreds. They tore me up for a while be the Lord put me together. I think there is hope in that, in knowing that He is the God of possibility and of putting things back together.
