Disappointed With Life?

Ecclesiastes 1:2

Solomon declares that 'all is vanity' or we might say today that 'there's no use…it's meaningless'. He is talking about life. What's the point…what's the use? Nothing really matters. Now that is a feel good message isn't it? Actually it sounds like Solomon was disappointed with life. It is important that we learn how to handle the disappointments of life, so we will not become disappointed with life.

Disappointments will come and go. Sometimes they are huge and at other times they are the little nagging things of life that seem to plague us on a regular basis. Perhaps you've experienced a few disappointments in your life. Maybe you're going through one right now, as we speak. This morning I want us to consider how to deal with the disappointments of life, so that we won't become disappointed with life.

I. Disappointment Is One Of He Facts Of Life

II. Dealing with the Pain of Disappointment.

III. Allow the disappointment to drive us to the source of comfort. Cf 2 Co. 1:3-4

This world is not my home, I'm just a passin' thru. My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue; The angels beckon me from heaven's open door. And I can't feel at home in this world anymore

There are many disappointments in this life, but we can find comfort from the promises of God's Word. But perhaps you are disappointed with life today. If that is true, let me encourage you to be born again. The life that comes from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ will never disappoint us. Jesus said that He came to give us an abundant life. Do you know Him today? Why not come and receive this wonderful life right now? Christian, how do we handle the disappointments of this life? Let them drive us to the source of comfort…Jesus Christ. Let them remind us that all of this is temporary. We must live our lives with eternity in view. Come today, whatever your need.
