Disappointment
Hostess: Lysa TerKeurst

Sometimes disappointment can actually be a gift! Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries. Several weeks ago I was invited to speak at an event that was supposed to have nearly 5,000 people but- only 300 came.

That weekend I learned opportunity can be found in disappointment.

I met four amazing people that weekend. There was Petra my waitress, Tom the doorman, Jason the barista and a woman named Jenna whose car was damaged in a hit and run. Each of them had a story to tell, and because of the small crowd at the event, I had time to listen. If disappointment makes me think less of myself and more of others and God, than I choose to see it as a true gift. My prayer is that I’ll always remember to look on the fringe of my carefully planned days to recognize God’s unexpected appointments.
