Disappointed – #Write28Days – Day 1

I sat down to write but my mind is blank.

I’m disappointed.

I wait weeks for a package to arrive, but it is lost in transit.

I’m disappointed.

I bake a cake for my husband’s birthday but it’s raw in the center.

He’s disappointed.

My son worked hard to complete college, but a global pandemic cancelled graduation.

He’s disappointed.

My daughter was scheduled to for field study in an ESL classroom, but COVID-19 canceled classes.

She’s disappointed.

We spend all weekend working on a jigsaw puzzle, but there are a couple of pieces missing.

We’re disappointed.

God earnestly tries to get our attention, but we ignore Him.

He’s very disappointed.


Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7 NIV

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28 NIV

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. – Proverbs 16:9 NIV


This post is part of #write28days



  1. I finished a puzzle a month ago that also had a missing piece. It was quite disappointing! But that was minor; I’ve had more serious disappointments this past year as well. Thanks for reminding me I’m not alone, and that we still have reason to hope again, always.

  2. Reading this, I believe you are a poetic soul! Very good…God is always waiting for us at the end of the day, or wherever we happen to be. He loves us through it all…He is ALWAYS the missing piece of the puzzle.When we get lost or can’t find our way in any given situation, there He is, our Heavenly Father, telling us we are already whole, already complete, because of His great love for us.
