I bought a self-help tape called, “How to Handle Disappointment.” I got it home and the box was empty.
Have you ever experienced a situation like the one above? Have you ever found yourself disappointed in either yourself, the people around you, or possibly even God? If so, you are not alone. Many of us find ourselves in disappointing situations, what separates us is how we react to these situations. We can either take control of the situation or let the situation take control of us.
The Prophet Habakkuk offers us some insight into handling disappointment. After God revealed to him that Babylon would conquer and destroy his country, Habakkuk came to the conclusion that no matter what his circumstances were, He would find his joy in God. His words could, and should, be ours.
May we all seek the Lord and ask His strength to carry us through our times of disappointment.
