Afflictions-Suffering-Quotes, Devotionals, Illustrations

Affliction and suffering are a certainty in the life of a follower of Christ. In fact in Philippians 1:29 describes suffering as a "gift of grace!"  As an aside it is clear that trials in the believer's life are intimately related to afflictions and sufferings so there is some overlap in the quotes and illustrations on this page between those three topics.
