I have much yet to learn.
I lose heart too quickly.
I allow assumptions to wreck my emotions too rapidly.
I let disappointment sink my hope too easily.
I keep my disappointment cup too full. Then, it only takes one extra drop to cause the hurt to spill out all over again.
I purpose in my heart to believe in God’s promises and His power to fulfill them.
To remember all He has done and has yet to do.
To run to Him when disappointment pounds at my heart’s door.
To cling to the Lord and let love teach me to believe.
To let God replace the hurt inside my disappointment cup with love.
Avoiding Disappointment With Love That Never Fails
Bears all things
Believes all things
Hopes all things
Endures all things
Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:7,8
Have you ever thought you were staying strong in believing for something only to find your hopes dashed to the ground in disappointment? Allow God to empty your cup of disappointment and replace the lies of the enemy with His love.
Father, please forgive me for all too easily allowing my circumstances or false assumptions deceive me into losing hope. Help me to learn to run into Your arms of mercy and love whenever disappointment tries to overtake. Teach me to let love be my guide, as I quietly wait for You to intervene. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Amen dear sweet sister! Wonderful encouraging words! Thank you! 🙂
Last weekend I was asked to role play. In this play I was the victim of a bully attack. At one point, I felt the Lord give me a picture … While the “attacker” hurled insults, I pictured the Lord’s hand firmly around my shoulder. I was told to just say, “so?” … It was easy to do, thinking that the God who created all, was sitting next to me, being my friend. I was reminded that I can do the same when life and the enemy comes at me.
Thanks so much for sharing, dearest Sue!
What an awesome picture that must have been. I think I’ll practice that one myself! Thanks
A beautiful sky and a beautiful cloud reflection to go with your own lovely reflections.
Thank you so much! Blessings
Just the comfort we needed for what we’re going through right now. God’s timing is always perfect, and you are always a blessing!
So glad Cuffe sisters. blessings and strength for whatever is going on.
