When I was faced with the very opposite outcome of what our family had hoped and prayed, I felt greatly disappointed. Disappointed with God? Yes. I remember receiving an email from an acquaintance who had prayed for our son. She seemed to have many questions of her own and wrote, “…but God does not disappoint.”

I remember thinking, “You feel that way because it was not your child who suffered and died.” I wrote back to her, “I feel VERY disappointed.”

    Melanie…I’ve been following your blog for some time and am always so blessed by your words. I “just happened” to be reading “Disappointment With God”….I “found” it at my office last week. I had some of those same questions and I am so amazed at who God is in spite of my small version of him……thank you for your words. Blessings

      Thank you for your encouraging words to me. You are right in that we are often guilty of having a “small version” of God. I wonder if we’ll finally be able to comprehend his awesomeness once we are in His presence. I suppose it would overwhelm us in the here and now but perhaps He sometimes allows us a fleeting glimpse. I think of Moses whose face had to be veiled after His encounters with the glory of God.
