Years ago my pastor told me that disillusionment is a good thing and not to be avoided, because it means we're being delivered from an illusion. So now, when I feel disillusioned, I try to stop and thank the Lord for delivering me from the deceit. It still hurts, especially when we're feeling disillusioned with a friend or family member...even a long-held dream, but there's freedom if you take the time to find it.

  1. Being delivered from an illusion...hmmm. That gives me a new perspective on this post that I'm sure I've shared w/ you.

    Freedom from an illusion...pruning for future growth...They both work nicely as metaphors, but yours gives me fresh perspective today. Thank you! and hang in there. Freedom from something also means freedom into something else...
