Suffering

Suffering is a part of life. We can’t escape it or hide from it. Suffering is pain, distress, or hardship that follows things like a natural disaster, a medical diagnosis, or random acts of violence.

Suffering wasn’t part of God’s original plan. When God made the world, there was no suffering. Then Adam and Eve chose to disobey God and sin entered the equation. Now we live in a broken, fallen world where bad things can happen. But suffering can provide an opportunity to draw closer to God. He is near to the brokenhearted, and He is the only one who can bring purpose out of pain.

When we’re in the middle of suffering, it feels like it will never end. But with the help of God and others, you can make it through. Connect with us if you need help getting through suffering.
