We have all said things we should not have said and did things we should not have done. It may have been years ago or just the other day. Do you ever look back on it and say, “I can’t believe I did that” Do you regret what you did or said? It happens all the time. But how many of us turn around, go back and change that disappointment into a positive to make it right? Not many of us!
The situation can be reversed when someone does or says something to you. Do you say anything in return or do you quietly walk away? Believe me, years ago I would say something at the drop of a hat. Now, the Holy Spirit convicts me and put’s me in my place.
Disappointments happen almost everyday. It could be something small or big, and you may blame God. But how you approach those disappointments matters.
God puts it in our hearts to do good to others. He gives us the courage to encounter difficult situations and empowers us. Just as God gave the power to Timothy to spread the gospel and not fear in the verse above, He gives us the power and the love to turn around and make it right in those disappointing moments.
Paul wanted the best for Timothy in the same way God wants the best for our moments each day.
Disappointments will come and go, and some will make you mad. Allow the Spirit to change your heart. Do not blame God because Satan would love that.
When those situations arise and you become disappointed, fear not and if you can, change that disappointment. Trust God and know that He will work everything out.
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” (2 Corinthians 4:17)
