When our expectations do not come to pass, we can be left disappointed, frustrated, angry, or depressed. One way to combat depression during the holidays is to release our expectations; Release our expectations of ourselves and others.
When God looks at us, He doesn’t see our imperfection, our nicks, and our gashes. He sees our heart. He sees His son, and His son’s sacrifice on the cross. He sees us in His image. He sees beauty despite the flaws.
