reflecting on the blessing.. [day eight] .. 31 days of expecting Jesus

I got some disappointing news.  It’s not life  altering  ending or threatening in any way.  Just so disappointing.

You’re just clicking along in life, enjoying every sweet blessing and then whoosh.. disappointment.

I can’t help but believe that it is God’s way of reminding me that He is in control of my life.  You know that day that I said, “I love you Lord.  Forgive me.  Take my life and make it Yours.” Well, He reminds me often that He knows better.  For that promise, I am eternally grateful. (don’t you just get God smacked that we get to be with Him forever?)

But sometimes.. just sometimes.. the way things happen in life can be so very disappointing.  Not bad or as a result of a consequence of sin, but just disappointing.

How do you handle moments/days of disappointment?  Even in the constant days of expecting Jesus, how do you respond to the ::sigh:: moments?

11-12 You did it: you changed wild lament
into whirling dance;
You ripped off my black mourning band
and decked me with wildflowers.
I’m about to burst with song;
I can’t keep quiet about you.
God, my God,
I can’t thank you enough.

Psalm 30:11-12
