It’s important to tell this story of perseverance because we see the hero, but we don’t see the backstage of the afflictions. You need to accept them, no matter how difficult. Know that as long as you breathe, your goal will be waiting for you. Trust the Lord, He is fair and loving.

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to men. And God is faithful; he will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when they are tempted, He himself will provide a way of escape, that they may be able to bear it.

1 Corinthians 10:13
