Does my suffering have a purpose?

Suffering is common to the human experience. There is no escaping hardship, pain, and grief. The inevitability of suffering has done little, however, to diminish the shock many feel when pain arrives at our doorstep. Additionally, attempts to understand God's role in allowing suffering has perplexed humanity over the ages.

Drawing from Scripture and his ministry experience, Pastor Bryn MacPhail asserts that all of our pain and suffering has been carefully measured out by a loving, all-wise, God who has our ultimate good and His glory in view. While we do not court suffering, nor cherish its arrival, Pastor MacPhail insists that pain is one of the primary tools God uses to conform His people to the image of His Son.
