bummed {day 18 of 31}

This evening has been full of one disappointment after another. So many things going wrong, not working out like I’d hoped. Seriously, like bam, bam, bam, five or six (maybe 20) things in a row. Such a bummer.

I’ve come really close to tears several times, but keep thinking, “I’ll wait and cry after I finish one more thing.”

So, as soon as I write this post, I’ll bust out the tissues.

I know in my head and heart that the best (only) antidote for the world letting me down is to turn to Jesus. So, even though I feel like raiding the kitchen cupboard and losing myself in a book (both of which I still may do), I’m going to share some truth with myself.

Who knows? Maybe somebody else will benefit too.

…that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith–that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:16-20)

And amen. God, help me believe your word.

    Disappointement is so demoralizing. I’m so sorry. Even more sorry that the disappointments piled up on you. I’m hoping today provides a new sense of possibility.

    Here’s a little more truth:
    “The Lord your God is with you,
    he is mighty to save.
    He will take great delight in you,
    he will quiet you with his love,
    he will rejoice over you with singing.” -Zephaniah 3:17

    Something about God quieting me with his love has always been so comforting. I pray this verse every time I’m just wrought with fear, complaints, distress, crabbiness, whatever… He wants to quiet our worries so he can rejoice over us by singing!?! Crazy awesome!! Love you friend!
