Cancel your appointment with disappointment

Disappointment wants to dominate us and to steal the joy of hopeful expectation. Refuse to let disappoint destroy your joy in the present and your hope for the future. Life’s full of too many blessings to be disappointed by the ones you think you missed. Cancel your appointment with disappointment.

Disappointment says, “Look back and cry.” Jesus says, “Look to Me and rejoice!” The living Jesus is the best ointment to heal your disappointment. Prisoners of disappointment, let the living Jesus set you free!

Disappointment is like a pier. It doesn’t cross the lake, but it does give you a fresh viewpoint. If you refuse to look back, but look forward with hope, disappointment can’t last.

Disappoint your disappointment. Refuse to follow where it tries to lead you. Defer it until it’s so distant you hardly notice it. Continually point your mind toward your blessings, not toward disappointment.

All human life is made in the image of God. Respect God’s image in everyone. The loss of young human lives is no less tragic because it happens prenatally. When a country is overflowing with insults and rudeness, one kind word is powerful.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
