People disappoint. Sometimes we're the ones doing the disappointing. Sometimes we're the ones experiencing it because of what someone else has or hasn't done. I've been on both sides. I've caused deep disappointments. I've felt disappointed. Disappointment comes when our expectations are not met.
I have a tendency to question God, and sometimes get angry at Him, when I'm disappointed. My thought process usually begins with:
Well, God, You had the power to change this situation, so why didn't You?
I'm learning to bypass those thoughts, and move straight to:
Okay, God, what now? This is for a reason. I know You love me, so what happens next?
He gave me this answer today in a song:
Praise anyway...worship anyway...show Me you love Me anyway...even now...in your disappointment.
In my disappointment, I'm learning to seek His glory.
What about you? Where do you allow your thoughts to go when you are disappointed?
