Feeling disappointed in someone or about something? I have felt disappointed countless times in my life! And I am here to share with you the secret to learning how not to get disappointed!
When we’re disappointed, we feel let down because an expectation we had was not met, a hope we had was not fulfilled, a desire we had was not satisfied, etc. All of this is about US and what WE expect and WE want and WE hope and whether WE are happy and content and how WE feel etc. And it is about looking to this world – to people, places, things, and circumstances – to satisfy our hopes and desires and expectations. This world and this life WILL disappoint us at times even sometimes greatly because we are imperfect humans living in an imperfect world.
When we get our focus OFF OF SELF and ONTO THE LORD and the Bible and His ways and His will for us and we live for Jesus and not for self and we obey God’s commands to love Him with all our hearts and others as ourselves and we put our TRUST AND HOPE AND EXPECTATION IN GOD not this world and people and this life, we will be blessed and satisfied IN THE LORD AND IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM ON THIS EARTH AND FOREVER IN HEAVEN.
Please don’t look to this world to satisfy you. Please believe in and look to and live for the Lord God almighty in Christ, AMEN!
“My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.” Psalm 62:5
