It's so hard when you’ve been hoping and praying for something and it doesn’t happen at all like you expected or wanted. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. How true is Proverbs 13: 12, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” But even with heart sickness and prayers unanswered my way I know God has the way to work all things for the good. In the meantime it’s good to recognize the disappointment because it’s part of the recovery process. Of course, we can always find someone that’s worse off than us or a reason why, we shouldn’t complain but I think the healthier response is to actually acknowledge the let down, express our emotions and then pull up our boot straps and move forward with God’s plan.
My aunt always says, “I rather have sickness in my body than sickness in the mind or spirit.” And I agree. But thankfully there’s a God who’s there to help and heal us through all our sicknesses…everyday.
