Devotional Deep Dive:
Do you struggle with feeling like your life should have accomplished something great? That if you really had lived your life right then you would have accomplished more or done something noteworthy? If so, we need to let go of our own unrealistic expectations of ourselves and realize that we can simply be good servants of God who are faithful and that this is what God requires. How can you let go of parental expectations or personal expectations that still drive you to overeat and live unhealthy?
