      The following Christian books on suffering, grief, loss, and death will help you learn God’s view on suffering and be prepared when suffering enters your life. My prayer for you is that God would supernaturally equip you to joyfully obey the command of 1 Peter , just like he did my mother. God promises a time when there will be no more crying, no more tears, no more pain and suffering, when we will be reunited with God in perfect harmony, forever.

      God used my hurt so that he could clearly write the lessons of his grace on my heart and set my affections on him (Psalm ). Use God’s Megaphone to Speak to a Dying World One of the most interesting realities of suffering is that our personal pain also speaks to those around us.   This is the world God prepared for the suffering and death of his Son. This is the world where God made the greatest display of his love in the suffering of his Son. Romans “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” All his suffering was the plan of God to reveal redeeming love.

      God knows our suffering and he promises we will experience it, especially as we get closer to Jesus. At the end of A Grief Observed, Lewis concludes, much like Job, that, “God has not been trying an experiment on my faith or love in order to find out their quality. God came to earth to rescue us. "For God so loved the world, that he sent his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him." God knows the pain and suffering we encounter in this world.
