Disappointment or His Appointment?

Sue’s Views
Disappointment is something we will all experience many times on our journey through life. It is inevitable. Mainly due to our reality not lining up with our expectations. We expect people to do what they say ….. or we picture in our minds what the outcome should be but circumstances ruin our plan. I was looking at the word ‘disappointment’ this morning. I see 2 words ….. ‘dis’ and ‘appointment’. The prefix ‘dis’ usually has a negative connotation. What if we look at disappointment as something that takes us away from God’s appointment! When God makes an appointment ….. He keeps it! When He promises something ….. He fulfills it! Sometimes our expectations hinder us from experiencing God’s appointed plan. So instead of seeing things as a disappointment ….. maybe we should be waiting for His appointment!
