It sometimes seems to us

that life is nothing but

a series of temptations.

As soon as one temptation is overcome,

another comes to take

it’s place.

It never seems to end.

Doesn’t the time ever come

when our struggle with temptation

is forever done away?

No, that time never comes –

not in this life, at least.

God sometimes takes away the power

of a certain temptation

with which we long have struggled,

And that fills our hearts with joy!

But most often,

the struggle with temptation

goes on as long as we do.

God has not promised

that there would be no temptations

in our lives.

But he has promised

to give us the strength

to win a victory

over every one of them.

There is a way of escape!!
