I know that with God, you will experience suffering.

With God, the heartache we face can be used to build strength, perseverance and hope in your life.
With God, what has been lost can be redeemed. What has been stolen can be restored. He can cause you to embrace a joy you never knew was possible and walk in a freedom you did not earn.
Suffering is a part of life but with God, it can be used to forge your character and strengthen your faith.
The miracle you get to experience with God is when you can look back upon your life and can be thankful for what He created in you as He walked with you through the trials.
“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.”(Romans 5:3-4 NIV)
