‘You Taught My Feet to Dance Over Disappointment’


Nothing is too big for our God. He uses every choice to fulfill His purpose for our lives. His love is crushing every lie, every doubt and every fear. In a season of such darkness, let us choose trust and hope today.

Where does one turn when the days are boding and dark? What does one do with the mountains of disappointment that seemingly cling to every intentional step forward, weighing down even the best of intentions and effort to break through the darkness with light? This is you. This is me. This is our world at the moment. A world where heaviness and darkness seem to be overshadowing even the best of days, but we are not ones that stop there. No.

We believe that disappointment is meant to be danced on and over, not with. We believe that He is who He says He is and does what He promises to do: “I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in Me should remain in darkness” (John 12:46). A bold statement of identity, unyielding in its intentionality. An undeniable declaration that can only be embraced or avoided.

So, we have a choice—to dance with disappointment, giving it a spot at our table to dine on and pollute even the best of days, or we can worship and cry out, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24). Our unbelief that these days and times can truly change, our unbelief that we can make an impact against the surmounting avalanche of assault upon us or even our unbelief that He actually is who He says He is: good, true and a lion.

“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
