It isn’t, “If we’ll ever be disappointed” but when. Disappointment is part of life. But, what should we do with it? Ignore it? Bad-mouth the event or the person that caused it, even if it’s ourselves?
I enjoy hiking with my family. I like to play with my grand kids, go to car and motorcycle shows. Ride motorcycles again. I enjoying boating and snorkeling. I want to go to the grocery store without being in pain.
I’m facing disappointment right now. A couple of years ago, I suffered two unrelated injuries to both feet; tearing a ligament, fracturing bones.
But, what do I do with my disappointment?
I prayed, and God reminded me that only He can release me! His shoulders are broad and strong.
He wants us to trust Him enough to give Him our disappointments, hurts, frustrations, fears, anger, even our disappointment. He already knows what we are feeling, so why not give it to Him? He will either remove our burden or help us during our struggle. However, no matter which one He chooses, He will always be with us, HELPING us through it!
This Friday I’m having surgery on my right foot. The Dr. will screw bones together that didn’t stay fused after the first surgery. He will also replace the joint in my big toe to remove arthritis pain. Then prayerfully, next spring I will have surgery on my left foot to remove arthritic joints.
I’m praying that next August I will be hiking in Colorado with my family!
