When my children were little I read and re-read the book, “The Best Nest”, it was our favorite story and of course with great animation and hearts of joy we gave melody to Mrs. Bird’s proclamation at the end of the book:
♫ I love my house, I love my nest, in all the world, this nest is best!
Mrs. Bird had a major revelation as she went off on her own looking for a “better” house. Through windy rain and thunderstorms, Mrs. Bird found contentment back in her old digs! Mr. Bird finds her sitting on a nest of eggs and they sing their song and life is good!
Even being completely “sold out” to God and knowing He has my best interest at heart, I still suffer from this thing called “disappointment”. And, we had a major one this past week. I know all the trite comments and the right scriptures, but nevertheless, disappointment looms. And it doesn’t feel good. It doesn’t set well. It doesn’t taste good. And, it sure doesn’t look very pretty!
So this morning I found myself doodling in my prayer journal, and here is what I wrote:
In all this life
His will is best!
So today I am going to take a lesson from Mrs. Bird.
How do you handle disappointment?
