All of us are subjected to trials and tribulations. It's a way for him to know if we deserve to enter his kingdom. It's not how much we are devoted to him, it's just doing what he commands of us to do. and we must based that to the ten commandments. The more we have trials in life, the more we embrace them and the more we prove to God that we are deserving to enter his kingdom. Life on earth is short and Life in heaven is infinite. would you rather choose a short term hapiness over long-term happiness? I definitely choose heaven!

I have experienced that. You must not questioned God's wisdom in giving you trials. For God believes in your capacity to solve it. Just pray for His guidance.
