Why I believe life is so challenging at times

It seems like everyone has hard times and life tends to fall apart. Sometimes things fall apart so badly that we wonder if they can ever be restored. I believe that this happens because there is an enemy in this world that we cannot see, but is no less real than the air we breathe. His name is Satan and I believe he is doing everything in his power to get us to stumble, fall, and focus on ourselves long enough for us to believe that either God doesn’t care or that God isn’t real. The scary thing is that this can happen in the subtlest of ways. Often attacking the things that we hold most dear. For example, if you are happily married, then the relationship with your spouse is a prime target. I think this has even greater emphasis if you are a married Christian couple, but that is a different topic.
