How do you deal with disapointment? People we trust to lead us, fail us. People we believe in let us down. Being in the Ministry, we often find out about other pastors who fail in their personal lives to such a degree that they forfeit their ministries and often forfeit their families.
We have been bombarded lately with discouraging news of friends and aquaintances, and I am disapointed. I am so idealistic sometimes. I truly expect those around me to be everything they should be.
Thank you Jesus for being Absolute. You are Perfect and unchanging. Everything you allow in my life is good for me. I trust you. I will not allow myself to be swayed by disapointment. I will continue to pray for my brethren. I will trust you to protect them and keep them from sin. Lord, may I never be a source of disapointment to anyone, for your Name's sake. May your Name be glorified in my life, and speech, and even in my blog. Help me to encourage others to holiness, as I strive for holiness myself. Keep me from self-righteousness and hipocrisy.
I love you Lord.
