Have you ever been disappointed by people? Events? Have you ever had desires, dreams and hopes that are unfulfilled or that you have failed at? Maybe it was a business adventure or the loss of a child. Maybe it came in the middle of the night and you don't know how it happened? Maybe you put trust in a person and they stabbed you in the back. Maybe it's the way you feel every-time you look in the mirror or another diet failed. Maybe it's a goal that was never accomplished.
Disappointment is a fact of life. It is something that I am horrible at facing. No one wants to be disappointed. No one wants to be a failure. All of us want to be success. We all want a place in this world. We all have hopes and dreams.
The one person who will never fail us is God. No matter what kind of crap is thrown our way, God is always there! He may seem far away, but he is not. He is with us, walking through the pain, disappointment and frustration. He is the same God yesterday, today and tomorrow.
If you're relying on other people for your hopes or dreams, your trust is in the wrong place and they will always let you down. Our ultimate trust needs to be in God. Anything less, will lead us to great disappointment, pain and frustration..
I am walking through disappointment and trying to let God hold my hand. It is hard to do..
Where are you today? Has someone or something left you disappointed?
