We are all guilty of wanting success, to win, to see the fruits of our labor.  When disappointment comes, how do we handle it?

From Oswald Chambers: Joy

One great hindrance of our spiritual life lies in looking for big things to do. We are meant to be the common stuff of ordinary human life exhibiting the marvel of the grace of God. The snare in Christian life is in looking for the gilt-edged moments, the thrilling times; there are times when there is no illumination and no thrill, when God’s routine for us involves towels and washing feet. Routine is God’s way of saving us between our times of inspiration. We are not to expect Him to always give us thrilling minutes.

I really love this quote from Mother Teresa:  “God calls us to faithfulness, not success”

Scripture:  2 Timothy 4:7
