We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. For instance, you know about Job, a man of great endurance. You can see how the Lord was kind to him at the end, for the Lord is full of tenderness and mercy. (James 5:11 NLT)

There are times that we only focus on the difficulties of the sufferings we are facing and fail to see the good reason for it. God gave us our own free will. We were given the capability and right to decide and do things based on our own judgement and understanding. Since we are not perfect, we tend to make bad decisions. These bad decisions often cause our sufferings. When we suffer, that is the time we gain experience. That is the time we come to know what choices we should not make. That is the time we gain wisdom. With wisdom, we become more patient, more understanding, calmer, stronger, and wiser. There is more to learn in our sufferings than being comfortable and complacent. Champions are not made inside the comfort zone, but those who go outside to face and overcome all the pressure life has to give. We are the children of God. Our Father has the best plan for us. We just have to trust Him. We should be better after every trial we go through. In the end, God is just preparing us to be fit for the glory that awaits us.
