A disappointment leaves your heart sick,BUT a sudden good break gives you a surge of life


Expectation is hope, It is good to expect good things happening for or to you. But we have to be ready to handle disappointment, when situations don’t happen our way. Everyone of us have had a share of disappointments in life. Instead of an appointment the appointment abort. Proverbs 13:12 states that when we get disappointed our hearts gets crushed/we get heart-sick/it breaks our hearts, BUT   when a wish comes to pass, it  is a tree of life

I see extremes here. A sickened heart and a heart full of life.

You go school expecting to make it, when we don’t its painful.

Get in a romantic relationship expecting a good thing to come out of it, when the relationship flops, you  flop.

You go for an interview expecting to get the job, when the opposite happens you feel like failure

The most painful experiences are in relationships. That’s  when we usually talk of a heart-break. This can lead to a wound for life. That’s  why Proverbs 18:14 says a man’s spirit can sustain him during sickness, but  who can survive a broken spirit? We expect the other person’s  faithfulness,taking responsibility and do their part in the relationship. We have expectations of how the other person should treat us and when they don’t we sulk. At times we blame ourselves for the other persons behavior.

Have you ever considered that at times things don’t work out, not because we are bad people. At  times things don’t work out and its for our own good. Also  life happens, so they say. The  most successful people in life, are those that don’t quit because they have had a mishap. Even  better, those  that do get healed from emotional wounds, difficult  as it may. They  say the first stage to recovery is acceptance. Myself, I sometimes find it difficult to accept that I am stuck in a certain way of thinking, because of disappointment in that area before.

Disappointments have a way of wanting to crush our hope. They  want to leave us downcast. When  we keep on trying, and trying without seeing any change, it’s a temptation to lose hope. That   leads to being downcast. That might also leads to despairing  which is very dangerous.


David said, “why, my soul, are  you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for  I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God. “He encouraged himself in the Lord.

We ought to talk to ourselves when we are downcast/low. We  need to put our hope in God. Knowing  that he is the one that sustains us. God  is not surprised by what comes our way. He  has given us his word and by it we overcome. We  are told of a quiet heart in Proverbs 14:30 that it is life to the body. A cheerful heart is  good as medicine Proverbs 17:22.Like Paul and  Silas we will praise the Lord when we are in trouble

Praise Yee the Lord!
