"DISAPPOINTMENT"

Hello my blog friends,
I have to admit I have had a week filled with disappointments all around me.............I turn the T.V. on and find many disappointing things, I have been disappointed by family and friends this week and many more disappointments life is unfortunately filled with many disappointments isn't it???? However I need to not allow the enemy to continue to rob me of my joy and the truth that God even through the disappointments of life gives me hope that NEVER changes and LOVE that will NEVER fade away Praise God. In the disappointments of life we must stand tall and remember the Lord will give us the ability to over come the struggles that are apart of everyday life. "we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character, and character hope. Now hope does not DISAPPOINT, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the holy spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:3-5
Well my friends as we are more and more circummed in this darkened world I think it is harder and harder to stay focused but we must we must be a "SET APART PEOPLE" IF YOU are facing disappointments as I have this week if it is from the news we recieve or our friends or family or whatever it may be may we remember as God has so gently reminded me that we are ALL in a fallen world with IMPERFECT PEOPLE whom will as do we fall short from time to time and is why we must rely upon the Lord SOLELY for ALL of our needs not some or most but ALL
and I believe when we do this 100% then when the time comes when someone does disappoint us we wont be so taken back by it.

"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal." 2 corinthians 4:17-18

Father thank you for NEVER disappointing us and always there for us thank you for your grace,
mercy, love and hope you give to each one of us. Lord help me to look beyond my circumstances
and struggles of this week and to see your purpose for me and my life alone I do thank you LORD FOR THE CHALLENGES you put before me in which I know bring me closer to you and help to make me into your image give me the strength though to go through them as they are at times difficult. I thank you for the growth that is continuing to take place in my life I pray this in Jesus name Amen
I ask that you keep my family in your prayers we have had a very challenging week to say the least we know God is good and faithful and are trusting in that He will see us through this time and guide and direct us every step of the way as He always does you are amazing Lord.
Until Next Time,
Servant to Christ Alone,
Cindy

Okay Cindy.
Yes, this fallen world is very disappointing.
I love the verse you mentioned... about focusing on what is unseen not on what is seen. This is the very verse God has been showing to me lately!
The following scripture has ministered to me very much too:
Isaiah 26:3
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

We can be in the center or the eye of the storm with Jesus, even though chaos rages around us.
I love you, and will pray...
Becky
