Disappointment. This is where I went when we were given news that we were not hoping for. The disappointment washed over my soul and heart and i nose dived into defeat. I turned to texting and ice cream and pity. My eyes were blinded for a moment. Blinded from truth by my own sinful heart. Disappointment is something that can be confusing, overwhelming and take time to process. Its ok the grieve for a time, in fact the Lord works and transforms our hurting hearts during that time. That emptiness that we feel after His-always-good “no” is to be filled with Him! If we look inward, and ask ourselves why we were so disappointed He may show us that our hope was misplaced. It happens, but we need to ask Him to redirect it, show us Himself. Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Where is our joy? Where is our hope? Disappointment will definitely help you answer those questions. Have joy in the Lord, for we have eternal life with Him and through Him, and that, mamas, should bring us joy no matter the circumstances.
