Having wisdom means knowing that all good things do not last forever and that all bad things do not last forever helps put things into perspective. Remember the saying, “This too shall pass” is something to keep in mind.

If you have committed your life to God, he has you in the palm of his hand. God will help you to rebound from the temporary circumstances you are dealing with, and remember to reach out to others who can help you. ~ Bill Greguska

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
