In 2007, we watched slowly and steadily the due diligence, time, money we had invested into real estate dwindle away. Everyday, I expected that today would be the day we would wake up from this mess and it would all be over. I just knew that by the end of each month our situation would be different.
Have you ever made a decision that seemed right at the time? Have you ever stepped out in faith and the outcome you got was different than the one you prayed for? Have you ever seen someone make a decision similar to the one you made but with a better outcome? Like Will Smith in the movie, Hitch, have you ever said, “I had pictured that going differently in my mind?”
I think we can all relate to the feelings of discouragement when life doesn’t go as planned. How do we respond in those crossroad moments? Do we retreat? Give in? Stop pushing forward? God Forbid!
In this 10 minute talk I share what I learned about the Lord and myself during this hard season of life and how we recovered from disappointment.
It’s your turn: What’s one of the best lessons you learned in the midst of a difficult season? How has it helped you and those around you?
