Yuck. I don’t even like writing that word. Just looking at it makes me cringe a bit. How about you?
When something in life is disappointing, it fails to meet your expectation.
Plain and simple. No matter how high or low those expectations were set, something has fallen short of meeting them.
Everyone will experience disappointment at some point; whether it’s family, work, church, friends, school, even your goals and dreams. The KEY is… How are you going to respond? How are you going to face inevitable disappointment as it lurks around the corner like a schoolyard bully? Are you giving up your lunch money so easily? Or are you willing to FIGHT for it?
Isaiah 40:31 in the Amplified Bible says, “But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.”
Today, if you are facing disappointment of any kind. Be encouraged! God will give you peace and rest to soar over obstacles that may be holding you back. He will also give you strength and strategy to accomplish those things that you desire.
Don’t give up and don’t quit.
You are rare, and there is only one of you.
So, be you.
