It is so wonderful to think that God is really just. God takes into our account our weakness and our frailty.
St. Therese did not escape suffering, even though she was a saint. Instead, her suffering transformed her into someone better. She turned it into a deeper purpose. She would agree with the quote above from Karen Salmansohn - "find joy in the story you are living," especially if your story is different from the one you thought it would be.
