Biblical thoughts on suffering

 1 Peter 1:6-7 – “Be glad about this, even though it may now be necessary for you to be sad for a while because of the many kinds of trials you suffer.  Their purpose is to prove that your faith is genuine.  Even gold, which can be destroyed, is tested by fire; and so your faith, which is much more precious that gold, must also be tested, so that it may endure. “

Romans 5:2-5 – “He has brought us by faith into this experience of God’s grace, in which we now live.  And so we boast of the hope we have of sharing God’s glory! We also boast of our troubles, because we know that trouble produces endurance, endurance brings God’s approval, and his approval creates hope.  This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit, who is God’s gift to us.”

John 11:35 – “Jesus wept.”
