C.S. Lewis 

“Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”

― C.S. Lewis

Suffering is a common topic in Christian counseling.  In order to help others who are suffering, the Christian counselor should have a good working knowledge of scriptures dealing with pain and suffering.  I have written a chapter on the topic of suffering in my book entitled:  "Godly Counsel."  You can view this chapter on my internet site: Suffering.  

According to scriptures, suffering is not always a "bad" thing.  In fact, pain and suffering can cause people to repent and to "turn back to God."
