What do you see through suffering:
B. It reminds you that every moment you live is a gift from God. "What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes (James4:14)." "It is good for us to encounter troubles and adversities from time to time, for trouble often compels a man to search his own heart. It reminds him that he is in exile here (Thomas 'a Kempis)."
C. It reminds you of the presence of God. "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted....(Psalm 34:18)." When you go through suffering, it makes an impact on you. "So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, 'It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared. ' The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel, and he was limping because of his hip (Genesis 32:30-31)." Peniel means face of God. Because of suffering, it makes you receptive to see the face of God.
