Ready to Overcome Disappointment? Here’s How with Baylor Wilson – 176

Episode 176 Overcoming Disappointment with Baylor Wilson

Disappointment hurts! Especially when what disappointed you was something you’d been working towards or anticipating for a long time. So how can we come to terms with being let down?

Country artist Baylor Wilson joins Darlene Brock and Julie Bender on
This Grit and Grace Life podcast to share her own run-in with disappointment. After a door closed in her life, Baylor sat in the pain of rejection and grief before realizing her worth and the possibilities that awaited her after being redirected. A chance encounter following her disappointment led Baylor to a career she loves and opportunities she previously never would have expected. 

When life hands us disappointments, it’s easy to feel overcome with sorrow over what could have been. Instead, we hope Baylor’s story encourages you to recognize your identity in Christ and embrace change as part of life—it could lead to you to prosper in ways you may never have thought possible before your disappointment.
