Comfort In Disappointment

May 30, 2010 — 10 Comments

In this life we all face disappointments. Some are larger than others; some break our bank accounts, others break our hearts. It is in these times we wish we could just transport ourselves to heaven and forget about the problems and burdens associated with this life, but it doesn’t seem to work all that often.

It seems to me, it’s in the moments of disappointments, when we just want to find ourselves in God, that God shows himself in us. We naturally think it would be better by far, in these sad moments, for us to have a vision of ourselves sitting in heavenly places with Christ, but perhaps God wants to show us a vision he finds more important for us in these moments; a vision of Him sitting with us here on earth.

God is not only the divinely powerful King who reigns high above all powers and authorities. He is the father who loves us so deeply he would rather strip himself of glory so he can sit with us in our humble state and comfort us. His word of promise is true for our lives in the good times and bad: He will never leave us, nor forsake us.

God is with us. He is with us right now. We have such a wonderful inheritance coming, an eternity where there will be no tears, and no disappointments. Until then, we may still face times of trouble, but Jesus encouraged us to take heart in these times, for he has already overcome the world.

God’s eternal plan is to take us all to the highest point of emotional glory, but he also wants us to know he will stay with us as we walk this journey of faith, and will hold us even in the lowest points of emotional distress we face along the way.

The waves of life may break over us, but the God who loves is still holding us. I pray you would feel his loving embrace today, and that his love and grace would bring you the comfort you need.

No matter what happens, God is with us.

  1. Beautiful words of comfort and encouragement today. Very prophetic expressions of God’s heart. Although I’ve been staring into this box as pictured most of my 50 years, I’m getting greater glimpses of this Truth you shared lately. Jesus is beyond good. This wrapped precious words around my recent experiences- bless you! from Val in Ohio :-)

  2. Wonderful words of life, bringing encouragement to one and all. Thanks Mick, for being faithful to share whats in your heart… You truly are a priceless gift to all mankind.

    Let us(all mankind)draw near with a true heart in full assurance
    of (His) faith, for our hearts have been sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
    Let us hold fast (that’s our faith) the profession of HIS FAITH without wavering; (for FAITHFUL IS HE WHO HAS PROMISED!
    Not a quote just my understanding of Heb.10:22-23+2 Cor. 5:14-21

  3. A great reminder that God ia always with us and He always loves and comforts us, even in the tough times. While my feeligns and circumstances go up and down, God stays the same. He is always here and He always loves. Thank you for these encouraging words, Mick.

    Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He never change, we change. He remains faithful even if we are not. He never walks away, He is for us and not against us. What a wonderful God He is. HIs love is unconditional and His promises are eternal.:)
