November 30, 2018 disappointment

Standard

Good morning, DearOne. This little fella really wanted us to share our chips and salsa yesterday. He was disappointed when the waiter ran him off.

The other day I read a quote about disappointment that stuck with me by Ann Voskamp:

“God appoints people who do disappoint – to point to a God who never disappoints.”

Who of us has not been disappointed by those we thought would always stand by us?

And who of us has not disappointed others?

Yet I do not think I have ever thought in terms that they were appointed to disappoint. Since reading this quote, I have not been able to stop thinking about it.

The statement is so true. There has not been a time in my life when disappointed by a person that I have not turned to God. In my hurt & woundedness, there was no other place for me to go but to God. Why? Because He & He alone will never disappoint me.

He will never let me down.

I think the psalmist, David, expressed is so beautifully…

“Our ancestors trusted in you, and you rescued them. They cried out to you and were saved. They trusted in you and were never disgraced.”

Psalms 22:4-5

We need to let those who have disappointed us, off the hook. Seriously.

And quite frankly, I want to be let off the hook.

I want to be forgiven for disappointing my friends & family. Can it be that disappointment is a gift that is disguised?  Perhaps in disappointing us, they have done exactly what God called them to do … they pointed us to Him. And He will never disappoint.

Wake up.

Let it go.

Go.
