Marileth, 

 

“in our life, test comes and goes, but at all times in laughter and sorrow”

 

In this sentence 'our' refers to more than one person.  Typically, unless 'our' refers to a family, only one person can have a life.  If many people have a life, then they have "lives".

 

So, try: 

 

"In our lives, tests come and go. . . ."

 

I hope this helps.
