As people of Faith, we occasionally endure situations or people unnecessarily. I surmise we confuse longsuffering with the power of faith.
Jesus experienced longsuffering as he prepared the disciples to carry on his God News Message.
Yet, he cursed the stubborn fig tree refusing to bear fruit and suffered no more.
In both cases, neither were ready to produce. Neither had reached the time for return on investment.
Yet, the disciples were allowed to continue on so the message would be carried forth. The fig tree writhed up and died never to birth another fig.
Sometimes we have to condition our mind to understand some situations and some people unwilling to move must be left, because even though it is not their time, it is our time.
That’s why many are called, but few are chosen.
My experience shows the chosen rely mostly on Faith and less on timing.
Faith in understanding being called has more to do with being willing than being ready.
