Isaiah 49:23b – Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.
It may hurt when disappointment greets us at the door, but it doesn’t have to permanently live with us. It’s all about attitude. When we ask someone to do something for us and they back out or say “no”, we can let it simmer underneath the surface. We may act like it doesn’t bother us. Many times, though, disappointment builds. However, we must examine the other person’s situation because there may be a reason, they can’t help us.
