Questions are asked to God of “Why? How Could You? When will it stop?”
But Jesus hears you and feels your pain. He felt it all. He is proof of it being temporary.
He overcame His pain and will help you overcome yours.

1 John 5:4-5
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

This world has pain. Jesus overcame the world.  Believe in Him.

God Bless
