How to Deal with Disappointment
How can we deal with disappointment?
1. Allow yourself to experience all the emotions
“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.” Galatians 5:16-17
“Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” | Galatians 5:24-25
2. Don’t remain in that place
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…” | Jeremiah 1:5
3. Ask God to give you fresh vision for the future
“Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well.” | 1 Timothy 1:18
