Maybe it is our love life where we constantly face rejection over and over again or a spouse or loved ones who continuously let us down, it could be that nagging financial worries as we strive to secure a stable job and perhaps it is a sickness that has deflate all your hopes of ever being cured.
We are human after all and often we will start to doubt if we can make it, if good things are ever going to come our way. Let's not give up. We can say to the Lord " With You, I can make it. It is possible with You."
