Grandmother Cha Sa-Soon lived alone in a remote mountain village in South Korea. She always wanted to learn to drive but didn't try to get a license until she was in her 60's.
She failed the written part of the driving test, not once, twice, or 10 times, but 949 times.
Having never driven, a lot of the test terminology was new to her, but she refused to quit. Finally, on her 950th try, she got a passing grade. On the actual "road test" she only failed 4 times before getting passing marks.
By this time, all of Korea knew about her persistence. Her triumph was celebrated and she became a national hero. She was even given a Kia Soul and appeared in one of their commercials.
All because of she wouldn't give up.
Who besides Grandmother Cha Sa-Soon has ever had to take a driving test 950 times before passing it? And who besides Grandmother Cha Sa-Soon has ever become a national hero for passing the written part of a driving test?
The more difficult the test, the sweeter it is when we finally prevail.
"And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." (Galatians 6:9).
