The Upside of Setbacks


“Setbacks have an upside” is a great life lesson. This from yesterday’s message inĀ Our Daily BreadĀ monthly magazine. I know from personal experience that this statement has merit. Others have told me that the same has been true for them. When a setback takes place in life, our first question is, “What the heck is this all about?” And then the question turns into an indignant statement, “This is so unfair!”

I could give some examples here, but choose not to, except to say that all my setbacks have had an upside, even though it was definitely not evident at the time. So those of you who are facing one of life’s setbacks, don’t lose sight of the fact that the upside is just around the corner.
