What is the role of struggle and suffering in human life? How often do we pray that God saves us from a particular struggle and suffering only to find out that we go exactly through this what we want to avoid? The doctor tells you bad news about your chances to have a child. Your father’s health is deteriorating. You lost a loved one unexpectedly.
Have you wondered why did you need to endure such pain? Take heart, God has given you much more than just freedom from captivity. Our pain and suffering are not in vain. They are powerful ingredients to transform us into vessels prepared to serve and useful to God.
