When Disappointment Turns Into Divine Appointment

Disappointment

Father,

Sometimes life just gets the best of me. Sometimes I give into the discouragement all around me. I get so caught up in myself when I want to be caught up in you.

Papa help me to focus on the future you have for me, instead of getting so caught up in discouragement.

Take me from glory to glory, for I know you are the one who prepares a table for me. You are the one who causes my cup to run over. You are the one who pleads my cause and lays out my days before me.

Help me to trust in you-wholly, fully, deeply, and unconditionally.

I want to fall radically in love with you, deeper each day. Help me to understand that this disappointment is leading me to future God appointments.

You have a plan and purpose for me. All of the days I will live are marked within your books. Give me the courage to chase my dreams.

Make my dreams become your vision.

Help me to walk glide for glide, right alongside you. I know you are with me every step of the way.

When I face heartbreak and disappointment, I know the road you are leading me down is beautiful, even if at this moment it doesn’t feel so lovely. The road you have for me to walk is going to be wonderful.

Wherever you lead, I want to follow. Many are the plans of my heart, but you, O Lord, determine each step. You determine my course. You know where I am going and where I will be. You know where I am right now.

Somehow, the best lessons come from the worst heartbreak. Something beautiful can spring up out of something so ugly.

Something the devil used to try to do me in for good you will use for my benefit. Lord I can make my plans, but your purpose prevails.

Give me the strength to be all that you’ve called me to be, and to face this season of my life with joy, peace, and grace. Give me the strength to trust you despite the odds.

Overwhelm my heart with love, that I would know your will is to prosper and not to harm me. I thank you for giving me a hope and a future. I entrust you fully with my future and I cannot wait to see the beauty that comes from it.

I love you Jesus, and I trust you.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
~Jeremiah 29:11
