Disappointment

"Godliness with contentment is great gain." 1 Timothy 6:6

There is many a thing which the world calls ‘disappointment‘, but there is no such a word in the ‘dictionary of faith’. What to others are disappointments, are divine appointments to believers.
If two angels were sent down from heaven–one to conduct an empire, and the other to sweep a street–they would feel no inclination to change employments.

"I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in need." Philippians 4:11-12

(Letters of John Newton)
