The Meaning of Dis

Updated: May 2, 2020


The prefix DIS- means "apart" and refers to the god of the Roman underworld, Pluto. Whenever I'm feeling disappointed, discouraged, or distracted, I remember this is my appointed time. I am to be brave and courageous and keep my eyes fixed on the path before me, my destiny. I will not be distracted. Whenever you hear it going on in your ear, know that the enemy is talking to you. He's been found out. We get to live in the goodness of God when we keep our thoughts continually on Him, and we will not be disappointed.
