Default Does the pain and suffering ever end?

Hey everyone. I suffer from a great deal of both physical and emotional pain. Does the pain and suffering ever end? I know there will be no pain and suffering in Heaven but does it ever end here on earth?

I think it does when we allow our selves to suffer with Christ.
When we suffer willingly and for a cause. For others.
We suffer in a way that allows for peace in our lives.
So yes, I would say it does end.

I for one have seen depression, thought about suicide once or twice, lost an entire way of life and half my family, pets, and even the innocence in my life was taken. Through prayer and Christ I made it back. And I found peace in my afflictions.

Keep our Crucified Lord always before you and suffer all thing for and with Him. There is true joy in suffering if we only open our hearts.

http://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-suffering.html

"Another example of suffering in the Bible is Joseph’s story in the book of Genesis."

Joseph was sold into slavery by his own brothers. In Egypt, he was indicted on false charges and thrown into prison. As a result of Joseph’s suffering and endurance, by God’s grace and power, Joseph is later promoted to governor of Egypt, second only to Pharaoh himself. He finds himself in a position to make provision for the nations of the world during a time of famine, including his own family and the brothers who sold him into slavery! The message of this story is summarized in Joseph’s address to his brothers in Genesis 50:19-21: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.”
