The Love of God and God's Purpose for Creation
What does it mean to you when someone says, "I thought..." something would go a certain way but it did not? Maybe they thought another would have a certain reaction but had a reaction that may not have been expected. Maybe several reactions were possible and there were one or more that were certain while others were unlikely but the unlikely was chosen. Another possibility exists; the "I thought" phrase could be completely sarcastic in nature where the person already knew the reaction or outcome and was just stating "they knew it"!
