When people or life let you down



Life can be disappointing…But, God always has plans.

Have you ever fallen into disappointment or despair. I have. It’s a sad and lonely place to be emotionally and spiritually. There are lots of reasons we experience this state of being. But, one of the most common is placing our faith in what is not faithful.

Often, we hinge our faith on humans, or systems (created by humans) and when they fail, we are hurt. This hurt, if not remedied with the Word of God, can quickly turn to bitterness and even depression. Neither are God’s will for you.

In my personal experience, I battle the conclusions of medical professionals. Sometimes, I have to battle conclusions of well-meaning Christians.

We cannot and should not trust anyone 100% except Jesus Christ. He is the only infallible and 100 % faithful One. Time and time again, I have seen doctors say one thing only to come back a short time later saying “I’m not sure what happened, but you have improved.”. Yes, God is in control. He will never disappoint. Even when He gives us something different than what we ask for, His peace soothes us through the sting of disappointment.

So, if your friends have not been there for you. Or your friends “leave you hanging”…it does not matter, trust God. Maybe the guy of your dreams didn’t marry you like he said he would. Perhaps, your husband has the compassion and sensitivity of sheet rock…it doesn’t matter. Keep your faith in God and count on Him and Him alone for what you need and you’ll be just fine. People will forever disappoint, cars will wear out and water is wet- all are part of life.

Remember, GodsyGirl Girl, your faith is only as good as what you place it in. Place it in the One who never fails. Amen?
