Disappointments come…and disappointments go…

If you have ever been rejected, failed at something, or if something in your life just didn’t turn out well—then you have likely felt the emotion of disappointment.  The moments following disappointment can be real tough—after all, you really wanted things to turn out well.  Disappointment is a part of life.  Sometimes things simply won’t happen the way we want them to.  We are not in control of everything that happens in our lives.  Trust that God has your best interest at heart and that while disappointing moments are difficult, they do come and go.  Disappointment is temporary and often times, it can be a blessing in disguise.  I have a female friend from college who was engaged to a guy who she was really in love with.  Just a couple of months before the wedding, he called the whole thing off—relationship and all.  She was devasted!  It took awhile for her to recover from this extreme encounter with disappointment.  As the years passed, she learned more and more about what type of guy her former fiance’ really was.  Now she is thankful that she didn’t end up married to him!  My point is that sometimes, not getting what you want can be a good thing!  Next time you experience disappointment in your life, be disappointed, be sad, hurt, even confused, but just for a little while—and then get up, dust yourself off and move on to the next phase of your life…
