If God's not meeting your expectations, maybe your expectations are too low.

The life of Jesus, particularly the story we read in John chapter 12, reveals that our expectations of God are often not met. But the problem is we’re usually thinking too small & setting our sights on short-term outcomes. We’re not able to see the bigger picture of God’s plan. We may be missing what he’s doing in us through the pain and uncertainty. Jesus desperately wants you to experience shalom—rich, satisfying, fullness—in every area of your life. Perhaps our expectations aren’t being met because they are too low for what God has in store. As you tell God what you think you want, remember to also trust him with what you need.
