Be careful/cautious in setting priorities.  While there are a lot of good things in life, if anything besides Jesus is at the top of our list of priorities, there will be problems.  Everything else disappoints.

Our spouses, families, friends, church, Christian organizations, etc. will all disappoint us at times.
When we get all wrapped up, even in a good thing, when a problem develops, and it will, we are in for hurt and disappointment.

An example:  My life for many years has revolved around my family and my church - not much else.  When difficulties come in either area, it can rock my world.  My family disappoints me at times - just as I disappoint them.  My church disappoints me at times - just as I disappoint my church.  If I put either of these areas above the Lord, or if I expect too much from them, I am in for some major disappointments.

Prioritize - Jesus first, family next and then my church.  Every other good thing must follow these priorities.  Keep your eyes on Jesus!

"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
Hebrews 12:2 (NIV)
