When Hope Is No More
Life is full of disappointment. In this fallen world of sin, people disappoint us, and we disappoint them. We disappoint our friends, our loved ones, and we even disappoint ourselves. Not only do we ourselves face disappointment in life, we also cannot help but sympathize with our friends and loved ones over the disappointments they face. However, it is not just people that disappoint us. Things disappoint us too. Things we think will make us happy always let us down, and people in whom we try to find our ultimate happiness disappoint. This is particularly the case when we try to find ultimate happiness and hope in ourselves.
