Disappointment’s Lie

I have been blessed with your message today. I will forever see the word disappoint differently, not only in relation to Our God, but as a parent, wife and as part of a family. What a blessing. Had to share!


disappointedSo, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose?

If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. —Romans 8:31-34 MSG

DISAPPOINTMENT IS SUCH A HEAVY WORD…yet we struggle to carry it around in our hearts and minds. Why? Many are heavy-laden with guilt and shame because they’ve “disappointed” someone in some way; maybe even God.

To “disappoint” is to feel shame because you didn’t meet someone’s expectations…

Depression, Anxiety and Sadness 
have been served an eviction notice:

It breaks my heart to see someone I love, locked up and away in their thoughts because sadness, disillusion and surrender have embraced them on their journey. I see the S.O.S. signal coming through, but when I reach out, they pull back, unsure as if they’re waiting for someone else to help them off the sinking boat and I’m not enough. 

I see you.
I see your angry disposition because you feel life has let you down. So many have lied to you and for a while you hoped and you jumped for joy. Then, as if a marionette, they clipped your strings and walked away when you fell, broken to the floor, left alone on the stage. 
I see you ready to perform on that stage but the audience has covered their eyes and ears and cannot see the beauty I see in you. I see it but you don’t believe me.
I see.

I see your strength wasting away on your bed of disappointments, waiting for the phone to ring and bring you the news to make you walk again. You don’t have to wait for life to call you out in order to walk again. Here, take my hand and let me help you. Walk towards me.
Walk again. 

I say this in Jesus Name:
This is an eviction notice to every tormenting spirit afflicting my family and friends, you have to leave, in Jesus name.

Depression and sadness, go!
Fear, anxiety, desperation and uncertainty, leave now!
Hopelessness, worry for the future, and lack, you’re dismissed!
Anger, self pity, low self esteem, quietly exit!
Lies, shame, words that were spoken to break you, belittle you, and hurt you, Get Out!
Discouragement, defeat and torment, vanish!

You are loved. 
I love you.
God loves you. You’re not alone.
I am on your side. 
Rise and walk again. Believe again. Go forward.
If God is with you, who can stand against you?
