Nothing seems more undesirable than hard times and unanswered questions, but God always has a plan and purpose for these moments in his children’s lives.
Disappointment seems like the gateway emotion to a lot of worse ones: bitterness, anger, depression and more. By that logic, God wouldn’t want Christians to experience disappointment. Why expose us to what only breeds bad things in our hearts?
The only problem is that Jesus regularly disappointed people.
Think about how Mary and Martha must’ve felt when their brother died in John chapter 11. They had seen Jesus heal so many sick people and knew that he was in a town nearby, and yet their brother suffered for days until he finally died.
