The bolts of lightening mostly strike at the highlands and the peaks of mountains. As for lowlands, they only attract dirt and stagnant water.

The Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said,

يُبتلَى المرءُ على حسبِ دِينِه ، فإن كان في دِينه صلابةٌ شُدِّدَ عليه البلاءُ ، وإن كان في دِينِه رِقَّةٌ خُفِّفَ عنه البلاءُ
"A person will be tested according to the level of his religious commitment. If there is strength in his religiosity, his trial will be intensified. If however there is weakness in his religiosity, the trial will be lessened."

The test may be tough, but perhaps it's because Allah sees in you what you don't see in yourself.

Stay patient.
