Disappointment: a matter of WHEN, not if

Daily Thought

Your Word for 17 April 2024

Proverbs 4:12
‘When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.’

The matter is simply a matter of when we face disappointment not if we face disappointment. The sooner we realize and understand this fact the better chance we have of overcoming disappointment.  Not only is it a matter of when but also the truth of the matter is that everyone faces it.
I have discovered that some of the people I think have no problems are usually facing greater disappointment than I can imagine.  Some of the greatest explorers and inventors went through many disappointments before finding success.

Psalm 37:39 The Lord saves the godly! He is their salvation and their refuge when trouble comes.
