on disappointments and appointments…

today, i have been alive for more or less 16, 486 days…
just last month, i could not wait to be  March 30 already,, but today it’s almost a week past the day i waited,, i was looking forward to hearing good news from someone, who promised that it will be on this day that she will tell me the news..
so, the day came and went,, still nothing..
of all the 16,486 or so days that i have lived, i couldn’t imagine being disappointed half of the days that i existed, (that’s 8,243 times).   if ever i have listed and taken into account all those times that i have been disappointed and dwelt on those, uh-oh… what could have become of me??
i know i have been a strong advocate of “looking at the glass half filled, instead of half empty”,,,, might as well REEEALLLY apply it here, so here goes:
i was NOT disappointed for 8,243 times!!!  HAHAHAHAHA, now THAT, is really good news for me!
as for my coming days,, say another 16,486  (ahem,, if God permits me to live that long)… i expect to get more disappointments in life, but, how to turn these into something good?  Let’s just say, as what i’ve learned from church, think of my disappointments as GOD’S appointments..
yes, His plans are better than mine, so, i just trust and obey.. difficult noh? but,, it’s all right, as long as i know i am in good Hands..
JEREMIAH 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
