When the Jesus you were expecting isn’t the Jesus who shows up

As yesterday’s Gospel reading makes clear, the Jesus that John the Baptist got was not exactly the Jesus he was expecting:

When John heard in prison what the Messiah was doing, he sent word by his disciples and said to him, “Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?”

Have you had the experience of expecting one thing from God but getting another? In what ways have you had to revise your notions of God’s nature? Of God’s priorities?
