Yesterday I was led through verses on 'trust' and how a breach of trust can be very painful.  And, trusting in the Lord is what gets us through.

Today, however, is another twist.  You learn how to put your trust in God, and because of that, you also learn how to overlook others' shortcomings or learn how to be on your guard and not be taken for a ride downhill.  Image then, when something pleasantly unexpected happens... when a sudden rainbow shines amidst this disappointment that you've experienced? You wonder where this silver lining came from.  Funny thing is, its been there all along.  Its the disappointments that have blinded us to these heart-warming moments.  For example, your friend disappoints you; doesn't turn up when you really wanted him/her to be there for you in a moment of need. But then one fine day, he/she turns up, asks you out to a movie, buys you popcorn, or takes you to Starbucks as in the good old days (not sure if Starbucks was around for that long...) and brings back happy memories, and yet another moment to treasure.  You're surprised, right?
I'm not going to go into serious issues, but rather mention things like a little kid enjoying your company... or a person sharing a laugh with you when you least expect it; all those little things that help brighten your day.

These little surprises truly helps us overcome those disappointing times, as we move on with brighter smiles and lighter hearts.  Can those disappointments get us down?  Nope.  Not a chance.  Are we going to let those disappointments get us down?  Nope. Not on your life.  For when we learn to trust in God, every little things is an element of surprise; that which we have never seemed to notice before or know what to expect.

Praise God for new mercies each day.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never comes to an end...
They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness.
(Lamentations 3:22,23)

    1. Thank you for visiting yet again and supporting, Raymond. 'Tis a blessing indeed to see you here and read your comment. When we realize the little things in life, the petty disturbances don't worry us ultimately... as there would be so many little things during the day that pile up and make us happy. :)
