“A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance….” Ecclesiastes 3:4 KJV
The occasional disappointments and failures of life are inevitable. Setbacks are simply the price that we must occasionally pay for our willingness to take risks as we follow our dreams. But even when we encounter bitter disappointments, we must never lose faith. God stands ready to protect us. Our responsibility is to ask Him for protection. When we call on Him in heartfelt prayer, He will answer, in His own time and according to His own plan, and He will heal us. While we wait on His plans to unfold we can be comforted in the knowledge that He can overcome any obstacle, even if we cannot.
