Disappointment Becomes Joy

By   •   July 15   •   Topics:


One of the great bonuses of being a Christian is the great hope that extends beyond the grave into the glory of God’s tomorrow. A little girl was running toward a cemetery as the darkness of evening began to fall. She passed a friend who asked her if she was not afraid to go through the graveyard at night. “Oh, no,” she said, “I’m not afraid. My home is just on the other side!” We Christians are not afraid of the night of death because our heavenly home is “just on the other side.” The resurrection of Christ changed the midnight of bereavement into a sunrise of reunion; it changed the midnight of disappointment into a sunrise of joy; it changed the midnight of fear to a sunrise of peace. Today faith and confidence in the resurrected Christ can change your fear to hope and your disappointment to joy.

Hear this 1-minute story of a man facing a bleak future when he found joy in Christ. 

Prayer for the day

Whatever I fear the most, Lord Jesus, I put into Your loving hands, knowing You will give me peace and courage.

    This is yet another reminder why we must stay focused daily on the study of God’s Holy Word. There are countless reminders that God is sovereign and in control 100% of the time. His mighty grace is sufficient for all who believe.

    It’s an unspeakable joy to know, right here, right now, your sins are forgiven.

    Then, one day, we shall see our Redeemer’s face.

    That, my friend, transcends every existential misery of this world.
