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.

The Ultimate Beginner's Guide To Bible Journaling Supplies

I love Bible journaling! I know a lot of people have reserved feelings towards writing in your bible and I can respect that but I really view it as an act of worship. I think we are improving the pages and we are planting visual seeds in our minds and hearts to be able to think on and be reminded of the Word of God. 

I have been journaling in my bibles for years but in a practical way. I discovered bible art journaling a few years ago and I have collected quiet the collection of supplies. Now I am an artist and use a lot of supplies for my other stuff therefore I have experimented with tons of supplies.

My husband and I recently moved cross country with our brand new baby boy. Driving cross country with a newborn is relatively easy but unpacking with a newborn is another story. At the moment just about everything is unpack BUT my supplies. So while I yearn for the day when I will have my full collection again I will share with you the best supplies to have when starting this new hobby of bible journaling.
