We have all felt pain in our lives; we have all suffered at some time in our lives; we all have
experienced heartache and sadness in our lives. Whether it was a scrape or bump on our knee
while we were playing outside when we were young, the loss of a beloved pet, the loss of your
home, an end to a relationship, a cancer diagnosis, or the death of a loved one, you suffered and
you wonder why. Why is God doing this to you? Our heartache and suffering is far from
pointless! You cannot see or understand the purpose which lies beneath your pain and suffering.
It is working in you a stronger dependence on God and a deeper love for Him and His Holy
Word. Do not lose sight of the glory which is to come. Your suffering is only momentary
compared to eternal glory. Never forget that God works all things to the good of His people and
he will never let you fall outside of His perfect will.
