One response to disappointment is to lower our expectations to such a degree that we stop hoping for anything. This isn’t a great response, but is especially devastating in a relationship with God. When we are disappointed with our reality, we are able to bring that to God and, through gratitude, hold on to the promises and character of God. This stance of faith in the face of disappointment is profoundly biblical (even if it’s not that easy).
