If God is Good Why Do I Suffer?


Most of us hate to suffer. And it is understandable since we are not masochist.
But sometimes the very suffering we hate is God’s blessing to us.

Let me share with you a story I heard from Sister Briege McKenna. Sister Briege was given the gift of healing by God. So here is the story.
A man came to sister Briege to ask to be prayed over for the healing of his cancer. So sister Briege did so. Months have passed sister saw the man again. The man thanked sister for her prayers. Sister then asked if he got healed. The man said no. But he was grateful to God for receiving a better miracle.
So sister was a little bit confused so she asked why.

The man told her that before he came to sister Briege, he and his wife was distant to each other. His kids were distant to him as well. Sometime after being prayed over by sister, he was rushed to the hospital.
It was there that miracle happened.

While he was in the hospital, he and his family got close again. It was his hospitalization that healed his family. It was at that painful moment where they became a real family once more.

For the man, to see his family united in love was more important than his health. For him, to feel loved is far more important than to be physically healed.
God used his cancer to unite his family.

So the man thanked God for the miracle he did in his life. He was not healed of cancer but his heart and his family was healed.

Sometimes God permits suffering for the greater good. God does not cause evil, he permits it. God do make straight with crooked lines. We can only look at Jesus on the Cross. The worst thing man did in all of history, we killed God. Yet, it was that very evil that brought our salvation.

Sometimes God blessings can take form of suffering. It is like a child, who has cavities, be
zing taken to the dentist by his father. He trusted his father only to end up in the dentist chair in pain. But the pain is necessary to take the away the cavities.

The father does not enjoy seeing his son in pain, but it is a process that his son needs to take. At that moment the child feels betrayed by his father because he does not understand what is going on.
So are we.
When suffering hits us we feel abandoned or betrayed by God. But like little children we do not see the whole picture, the whole movie of our lives. We see that painful moment at the whole of life itself. God looks out not only for our present but for our future as well.

Painful as it is for God to see us suffer, but if it is the only way to save us, He will endure it.
At the end of our life, when we are facing almighty God, we will see that all our sufferings made sense.

And we will be even thankful for those sufferings because it brought us to where we are then.

Heaven.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

    In the awesome scheme of things you’ll receive an A for hard work. Where you confused us was in all the facts. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more true here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what did give good results. Your writing is definitely very powerful which is possibly the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, whilst I can see a jumps in logic you make, I am not really certain of just how you seem to connect your ideas which produce the conclusion. For now I will yield to your issue but wish in the near future you actually connect your facts better.
