There are no disappointments to those whose wills are buried in the will of God.

Uh yeah, it only makes me wonder if I am ever going to feel this way…?
For more than just a few saving minutes at least. 🙂

Sometimes I advise myself, ” Never give up hope in the Lord! Hold on though you can’t see love vibrations and you don’t feel sweet sensations!” 😉

I believe when you’re searching for the Light – i.e. Jesus Christ – you can’t lose your own will but through faith, can you?

Hope you’re all doing fine, Fiona.

Love,
Susanne

Hi Susanne

Lovely to hear from you!

Yes, I know where you’re coming from. I’ve been thinking about this all day. I’m not sure i agree with the quote. If we’re human, we have to feel disappointment at least initially since we are not all knowing and all wise and don’t have the mind of God. I, like you, believe we can learn to trust that God has a better way and be willing to align ourselves to his will in the face of disappointment – but feelings of disappointment are inevitable since we are not perfect and cannot understand all things.

And yet, when we get down to the core of the issue, who could wish for anything other than God’s desire for us, even if we do feel the sting of disappointment when we realise its not what we first thought?

Well that’s my rambling tuppence worth! So glad to hear from you, it’s been a while. We’re all enjoying the lovely summer weather here. Hope you are too.

Love Fiona
