Romans 5:4 "Endurance produces character" .
It's hard running the race. Sometimes life gets hard and we want to quit our marriages, job, responsibilities,etc. but it's through those moments we learn who we are and who God is.
Sure, there will be people who give up on you and throw in the towel but it's ok because it isn't their battle. Sometimes, God has to get you alone to make you realize who He is and what He can do. This is where He begins to mold and shape you. He takes the hurt out here, adds a little more love there, scrapes out the pain and comforts the heart, squeezes you here, shapes you there and begins to mold you into what you were destined to be in the first place.
You will realize that season was but for a moment. It was just a stepping stone for the next battle but it made you wiser and stronger.
Remember, nothing happens without God knowing about it first. So, if He knows it, He will guide you. You have to keep running the race!
