A while back, I began a subscription to HBO through Amazon.com, in order for my college students to view a particular movie pertinent to our subject matter. Amazon gave me a seven-day free trial.
So we began watching the movie in class on a Friday, and we finished watching the movie the following Monday. I ended my subscription on Wednesday—with two days left on my free trial.
It was never my intention for my subscription to HBO to be a permanent situation. It was only temporary.
Likewise, if you’re enduring hardship or trial in some area of your life, hang in there because it’s probably not a permanent situation. This too shall pass. Trials won't last forever. It’s only temporary.
