Disappointment

Lord, I can almost taste the bitterness
__of disappointment;
__my shattered expectations and dreams
__are like gravel in my mouth.
So help me—my strength fails.
Help me
__to realize all that has happened,
__to see, beyond the betrayal,
__Your hand and Your love.
Through the failure of man
__You move silently but surely,
__even making human wrath
__to praise you
__and to being about my good.
Teach me
__in this disappointment
__to empty my mouth of grit
__and to savor instead
__the delicacies You have prepared for me.
__________That I may honor Christ,
_________________Amen.
