are you disappointed?

"For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" Jeremiah 29:11

What was he thinking?  It seemed like a hasty decision, but his previous decision appeared irrational as well.  Quitting a project and skipping on to a new adventure didn't make sense.  And now, another change? How could anyone watching not feel disappointment?

If we were just trying to please man, we would not be a servant of Christ --  and disappointment would rule in our emotion field.  It takes courage to admit a wrong decision and seek God's guidance for the next step.  When higher grounds are sought, hope and anticipation rule.  For God has promised to work all things to the good for those who love Him.  And all things includes... mistakes, crazy doings, bad decisions and disappointments.  Through the difficult days, with God, we grow stronger and wiser.

 Have you been through a disappointment lately?  Praise God! The err will not be the ruling factor in your life, our God has a better plan.  Believe, and keep pressing onward.  He has our best at heart.

have a sweet-filled day!
