Introspection — what better way to start a week.
Is disappointment the opposite of hope?
Hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. Hope is a feeling of trust.
What than is disappointment? It is sadness or displeasure caused by the nonfulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations.
So, disappointment is the failed expectations of hope. Hope is deferred when we lose trust.
Trust is the theme that always needs a repair in me it seems.
Gentle Father, I pray today that you would continue to heal that broken area in me. I do trust in you and need your unfailing love to surround me today. Thank you. Amen.
