“ . . . Those who hope in me will not be disappointed”

In this episode, Liz and his friends learn to deal with disappointments and discover that God will never disappoint them.

In Philippians 4:6-8, the apostle Paul tells us how to deal with disappointment and worries. He says to pray about them, and he promises that when we do, God will fill us with his peace. He won’t necessarily take our problems away, but he will give us everything we need to see them through. But Paul doesn’t leave us there. We can’t just stop thinking about our problems unless we think about something else instead. And that’s just what Paul tells us to do. He says that instead of thinking about our disappointments, we should think about good things, things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. In other words, think about all the good things God has given us and has promised to give us in the future. That will help us deal with all our problems.

Want to dig deeper and learn about dealing with disappointments? Check out Psalm 30:5, Psalm 34:18, and Psalm 55:22.


The apostle Paul likes lists. You’ve already seen his list of good things to think about in Philippians 4:8. In Romans 12:12, he gives us another list, a checklist of things to do when live is difficult. It’s a short list—the whole verse is only ten words long. Memorize the list, and use it to help you remember what to do whenever you’re disappointed.
