The disappointment of unmet expectations can be worse than the downfalls themselves. God gives us the ability to dream, so we may feel betrayed when our plans go unfulfilled. But we acknowledge that God also gave us the strength to accept our life’s letdowns. We ask God to give us the wisdom to adjust our plans and continue working towards our goals. May we not become so discouraged that we give up, but let us place our faith in ourselves and in our God. We pray for the healing of our disappointments and the resilience to keep pursuing our goals.
