Disappointment

We don’t admit to our disappointment in Jesus.

No, we say God is good.

We say, Maybe we can't hear His voice right now.

And, We just need to be patient

...and pray more

...and wait.

It’s fine.

We’re OK.

But, we’re not OK.

We’re mad as the dickens.

We want answers.

We want to know when?

and where?

and why her instead of me? Us instead of them?

Disappointment.

It clouds our days;

interrupts our nights.

But You are a good, good Father.

You can take all the disappointment

and hurt

and anger.

 

And then there's me.

What happens when I disappoint Him?

When I don’t listen?

or

follow

or

obey

or

wait

or

trust?

Does He pitch a fit?

or

turn His back

or

shake His fist

or

give up?

No.

No, He doesn’t.

He simply comes to Earth,

humbly and quietly,

and...

...dies for me.

Hallelujah, what a Savior!
