people WILL disappoint you

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

He was upset and hurt and needed to talk. What i initially thought was just a single incident, turned into a chain event. He threw-up a lot. His emotional vomit covered years of pent up pain and frustration. In life, we are guaranteed three things: taxes, death and disappoint from people.

Taxes and death, we can't control.  But, we do have some control over disappointment from people... or, at least, in how we allow it to affect us. We need to remember, we all make mistakes. And, when we depend on others for our happiness, disappointment is a guarantee.  People hurt, surprise, anger, mislead, abandon, ridicule, betray... just to name a few.  The worldly ways and expectations set us up for disappointment with our self and others. Who can measure up? How can we possibly rise above it?

If we can remember, God knows and uses everything for our good... 
If we can remember, God cares for our every need... 
If we can remember, God has a greater plan for us, one of hope and a future... 
If we can remember, we are the apple of His eye...
If we can remember, who we are to a perfect God, then disappoint with imperfect people will not matter as much, or at all.

In and through all things, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus.  Look and trust Him with every turn in our life, because our hope in Him will not disappoint.  Guarantee!

have a bless-filled day!
