Our disappointments reveal something deeper taking place inside of our heart. They expose where we’ve placed our hope for security, life, and meaning. The more we feed our desires, the stronger they become. Eventually, the idols of our heart become the focus of our inner and outer life. What we fail to realize is these ‘idols’ are incapable of leading to satisfaction because they were never designed to satisfy in the first place. Forsaken hope breaks our heart and crushes the object. Every longing we experience is a longing for life. At the core of these wants is a connection we are missing which can only be filled by God. We are designed to be satisfied by His steadfast love.
