How Do You Handle Disappointments ?

If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you would have noticed that it took a while before I published my last post.

I was in a bit of depression over a disapointment. That was actually the second time I suffered this same disapointment. I really felt bad because I PRAYED over it and was looking forward to getting what I wanted. I relied on one of my favourite Bible verses : “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Prov 3:6).

However, I was mindful of one fact : “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8). I had no choice than to “painfully” but willfully abide by dictates. Since I was 100% convinced that God was not wicked and had perfect knowlege of everything about me (past, present and future), I told God to speak to me through any means. I just needed to know why the disappointment came twice.

And so, God revealed himself via an email that I received. Then, I discovered that the disapointment was actually God’s means of giving me much more than I ever asked for :):) Halleluyah ! By now, the curious mind would be trying to find out “what’s up?” Well, be patient, as I will definitely share my testimonies once God has finished executing His far more better plans for me 🙂

Indeed, God has a beautiful way of bringing out sweet melodies from broken chords 🙂 Like He did to Joseph (Gen 39:2-4) – by making him to be sold and imprisoned in order for him to become great – He still does for all those who have (and would) faithfully surrendered themselves to Him.

Have you?

God bless us all…

Thanks for your time 🙂

  1. Thank you Michael for your pure honesty in sharing what you are going through. Indeed, no man is an island and I have learned that if God is teaching me something and speaks to me, there are others going through the same exact thing. So once again, thanks for sharing. Look forward to hearing and reading more of what you have triumphed over.

    • Thanks a lot Tonya for your visit and inspiring comment 🙂 I always like to share my experiences to, firstly, make a “noise” about the awesome power and nature of God, and secondly, to encourage someone out there. I always stronly belief that for every post that I drop, there is always someone out there who would find it useful – either now or in the near future.

      Glory to God for the encouraging achievements recorded so far.

      Once thanks a lot for making a very encouraging stop over. God bless us all 🙂
