Take this day as an opportunity to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord.
Focusing on the first part of verse 4, ask the Holy Spirit for the freedom to weep and to laugh in every season of your life.

Ecclesiastes 3:1,4:
There is an occasion for everything,
and a time for every activity under heaven:

a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance

    I’m currently going through a breakup. I often get mad at myself for crying out of the blue about it, but like this verse says, “there is a time to mourn, there is a time to cry”. It’s part of the process. So if any of you girls feel this way, just know it’s okay to cry and be sad. God is working while we wait and he will bring good out of the hard times in our lives. Praying for you all & the circumstances you are facing. I have been so encouraged by reading your comments. God is good, all the time.

      I know you wrote this two years ago. But if you ever see this, I am walking this road now and your post encourages me

    Needing prayers, I’m the process of a really tough breakup…I had believed I was to marry this man, and now he is gone. It’s been almost a year and my heart is still shattered. I’m just really hurting.

    1. She Reads Truth says:

      Oh, sweet Hannah. Praying for you, friend. Breakups are never easy. Asking the Lord to heal your hurting heart and to draw you near to Him in this time of pain and confusion.

      Hannah, I am experiencing the same thing. Praying that we both cling to God during this hard time. He will never leave us. There is purpose in this and God will make this hard time beautiful. Praying that He would give you wisdom and comfort. Isaiah 41:10

    Ladies, please send prayers my way. I’m in a time of transition between friendships and I am hurting

      Absolutely praying for you, sweet friend. Asking the Lord to hold you close and bring you comfort through His Word.

    I feel like I have lost my best friend, and in doing so have lost myself. Truth should be so much simpler. I have a deeper love, and ache for richness and knowledge of love because of this friendship…but there is also SO much hurt. I don’t understand where I went wrong. Deception is tricky. I don’t know what parts of our friendship were good and God-honoring, and which parts were fed by the enemy’s lies. I don’t know how to recover.

      I am going through the same thing with a group of friends. I’m listening to understand what lesson he is trying to teach me. It will all make sense one day

      If you haven’t already read it, “Uninvited” by Lysa Terkeurst is a great read. She does a fantastic job of encouraging people through struggles just like yours.

    I’m mourning the end of a 3 year relationship. It hurts like hell.

    I know the lord has his hand all over this but it’s hard. It’s hard that God isn’t tangible and he can’t just reach down and hold me in my mourning.

    1. Lauren says:

      He is listening and he is holding you tight!

    2. Claire says:

      It may not seem like it now, but He loves you! We love you too, and we’ll keep praying!

  6. Katie says:

    I feel so blessed to be in a time of laughter and dancing, because my family and savior have delivered me from a time of weeping and sorrow. I am so grateful for them!

  7. Bobbi says:

    I’m in a time questioning all of my decisions. Was God showing me all along through so many things that I was going down the wrong path?
    Did I not listen and now this suffering is what I get because of my decisions?
    The mourning right now seems so much stronger than the joy and laughter I’m trying so desperately to find and experience.

    1. Phylicia says:

      Praying for you and peace in Him!

      1. Liz says:

        Bobbi- there is grief but when your heart and mind feel different, prepare your knowledge and hold tight to it…even when you feel tempted to go down a path you know is wrong, get off of it. The right path is in front of you. And that is following and loving Jesus. He will lead you in that. ❤️

    I’m experiencing some heartache , I sometimes wake up and question God like why is this happening to me , it feels like I’ll never get a break . I just sit and Bed and cry sometimes because life has broken my heart over and over and I don’t know if it will evert in . I pray for healing and happiness in my life from this day coward. I want to be drowning in Gods love so happy that nothing can move me . This is what I pray for today
