God works sovereignly and beautifully through our suffering. When Paul and Silas were beaten and falsely imprisoned for casting out a profitable demon, they prayed and sang hymns to God from their prison cell! The other prisoners were listening, and were deeply affected by their peace and joy in suffering. Quoting Tertullian, "The legs feel nothing in the stocks when the heart is in heaven." God will use our suffering to bear beautiful fruit if we stay focused on Him!
