“Just as it is written, ‘For Your sake we are being put to death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered’” (Romans 8:36).

The hardships of life (a sample listing in vs. 35) confront us on a never-ending basis; seemingly, all day long. In our inexperienced youth, we mistakenly think that once we have faced a trial, life will return to the place it once was. Experience, however, has come to teach us that any present adversity is but a precursor and a preparation for the one that is forthcoming, and that nothing will ever be as it once was.
