"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ." (1 Peter 1:6-7)

1 Peter 1:6 & 7 ~ In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
God will give you the strength to carry on, just trust in him, and you will fulfill your destiny. If you can do what you can, then God will do what you can't. Find friends that will support you, and take steps, be determined, and all will work out. A season of grace is just around the corner.
