The natural response to an undesired event in our life is disappointment. Feeling disappointment is understandable and even accepted. But, it should be a stepping-stone on our path with Jesus...not the anchor that drowns us.
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
We've talked about this at church recently as well and yet I'm still slow at doing what I know I need to do, what God has told me I need to do. I've been asking God to give me another child for years. We've been actively trying for three years now, I've been asking for longer. I'm constantly disappointed by this. I've come to know that it will happen in God's timing and His timing will be perfect but I still allow the disappointment to hold me back. I let the sadness and hurt stop me from growing and from being happy.
I've prayed, I've talked to God, I've listened to Him and He has told me what I need to do to get things going but I haven't followed through with my end of things.
I've been letting the disappointment be my anchor drowning me.
I need to actively listen to what He tells me and do my part so His amazing plans for me can get started.
Comments from others about Day 2 that really stuck with me are:

Trust, Be in Him, & Follow!
