Setbacks as an opportunity for comebacks


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times Setbacks are a reality of life. The question is, how do you react to a setback? Do you let it permanently set you back or do you use it as an opportunity to move forward again? Opportunity or obstacle are the only two ways to view a setback with the first being a positive response involving taking a fresh and honest look at our situation and then using the results to find a new and better way to change it. Obstacle means viewing a setback in a negative light that can cause you to lose hope and quit trying to change your situation for the better. Setbacks will occur in life but if we take them as an opportunity to critically examine our lives and find better ways of solving our problems and improving our situation then it will really be a set up for a successful comeback.
