Disappointment

Disappointment is defined as the sadness caused by the nonfulfillment of one’s expectations. When we measure by worldly standards, we are disappointed everyday. Today I was disappointed many times. It started with expecting someone to do his job in a timely fashion for the sake of patients. Unfortunately he chose to do the minimum that would not break his contractual obligations. Patients and staff bore the burden. Then someone else interfered with my care of a patient by literally practicing medicine without a license. Instead of being commended for calling them out on their behaviors, I received negative feedback for expecting too much. Wow, I already have my own self worth issues and this kind of nonsense only feeds that lie. Thankfully I know that these events are part of the enemy’s lies and I hold on to the one true Hope.

Hot Air

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭63:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬

 

In our society today, the “hot air balloons” are sailing high.
Out of so many mouths comes “hot air”. There are numerous people who are full of hot air! (full of beans, full of bull, full of it; full of prunes)
We have come to expect lies, exaggerations, and nonsense—just check out our media. Sadly, we behave as if there are no consequences; but, each lie empowers the evil one. Standing for the truth and what is right may be tough sometimes and may lead to persecution, but the end results are blissful.

Evil

He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
‭‭John‬ ‭8:44‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Evil
By definition, evil is profound immorality and wickedness, especially when considered as a supernatural force.
When we look at all the cruel events happening in our world, how can we explain them without thinking about “good vs evil”. It seems to me that we have lost our moral compass by living however we feel is right. Our legislators and judges and politicians are such champions of individual “rights” that they condone so much bad behavior for society. And society has chosen the “easy” path of accepting it. Tolerance of unacceptable behavior has been bullied into our culture. Why? I believe that evil is behind the lies that many want to believe.
