What You Can Expect From God When Overwhelmed

I write this post today over the course of approximately 6 nap times. In this season of my life, I am a new mom to my sweet little 4-month-old son. My days are consumed with nursing, nap times and trying to keep my business moving forward to help my family. Overwhelm frequently knocks on my door these days.

Bible Verses About Disappointment - When Things Don’t Go How You Hoped

Mike, and I are no stranger to harder disappointments either. We have had quite a bit of loss in our marriage thus far. We lost a lot of really close friends. We also lost two babies to miscarriage. 

So I understand the temptation just to throw up your hands and say, “I’ll just stop hoping.” Honestly, if Judah (our three month old) hadn’t been a total unplanned surprise, I don’t know that I would have allowed my hopes to get up with conceiving again. 

Now disappointment is inevitable in this life. So what do we do? When finding a spouse takes longer than planned. When your husband stops initiating date nights. When the promotion is taking longer than seems fair. When whatever it is you have believed for still looks like an unheard and unanswered prayer. 

So what do we do when we are disappointed? Whether big or small, what does the Bible say about disappointment? Let’s look at one of my favorite passages of scripture about disappointment.
