Life can be difficult including when there are letdowns and things did not go as planned. It's certainly a good feeling to receive thoughtful words of encouragement from someone at any time, but especially when we need them the most.
There can be instances in life where someone feels alone in their plights, and that no one truly cares. Scripture states that during these instances, to pray to the Lord for His help and presence, and allow Him to carry us.
A situation might or might not change. But the peace of the Holy Spirit can overcome any situation and put things into perspective. This includes knowing that a situation will pass, but the love of God is above all things and will never pass.
Throughout the Bible, God teaches that encouragement is an inspiring part of what love is. From the book of Genesis to Revelation, the Lord gives His children ultimate hope and encouragement. This includes that regardless of how someone's day is going, it will pass, and they will soon see Jesus face to face in an exhilaration of love and peace passing all understanding.
Give the glory to God!

Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem the other better than themselves.
Isaiah 64:4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, besides thee, what he hath prepared for him that waits for him.M��M��N
When I feel like my prayers are not being answered fast enough, I sometimes change my prayer from, "God where is my miracle" to "how can I be someone's miracle." It shifts the focus off of me. I am able to serve God while I wait for God to answer me.
