If God is for us why do we suffer so?

If God is good and promises to be with us through all things then why do we suffer?  Why do we have pain, and burdens so great?  Why do our loved ones die ?

Did God say we would never suffer pain, or loose those close to us?

Maybe a better question is why do people work out to build muscle? Why go through so much pain and getting up at early hours do that?
Why do we eat vegetables and cheese or drink milk instead of eating just candy and cake all day or drink pop all day and no water.? Why deprive ourselves from what tastes good?
Why don't we just sit all day and never walk?  It takes work and sweat and sore muscles to walk every day!
Why don't people live forever? 

Because there are natural and spiritual laws!  
we can complain about these laws but it will do no good. They are here and we cannot change them.  
The law of gravity means if it goes up it will fall back down to earth. 
The law of health says if we eat bad foods and drink that in time we shall be sick and overweight and depressed.
The Spiritual laws of God teach us that we reap what we sow.  
And not one lives forever unless they are spirit beings. Not in this physical world where all things are born, then die.  Plants, animals, and humans. 

But what about suffering when we walk with God and do all that we know is right?

Rom 8:31  What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Rom 8:32  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Rom 8:33  Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
Rom 8:34  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Rom 8:35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Rom 8:36  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Rom 8:37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Rom 8:39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

by bible study side lines states:
absolutely nothing can separate believers from God's love. the apostle struggles  for words to describe the absolute certainty of Gods love for believers. Nothing hard or dangerous, neither death nor life, can separate us. IF God , the uncreated one is for us, and no created thing can separate us then our security in Him is absolute. 

Harvesting fresh food takes hard work but worth the effort What is more important than doing whatever it takes to know God's Love?  ©salzano 

No God teaches us that we are not here for our own purpose.  We have a higher purpose then this temporary physical life on earth.  A Holy purpose. Set apart by GOD with our best interest in mind.  For we see not what shall be but through a glass shaded from seeing all.  
We see that we shall suffer, for suffering builds things in us unseen by humans.  We trust God for all the unseen things His hands are molding in us through the circumstances of life.  This requires complete knowledge and acceptance of His Perfect Love for us.  As long as we do not accept that love from Him we doubt His purpose in our lives. We resist and fight against His will for us.  We have yet to surrender completely to His will.  Period.  

yes we are going to suffer just as Christ Suffered though not as physically hard as His.  But He does promise to never leave us. 
Paul established that :1. God has a purpose for believers, 2.Nothing can prevent that purpose from being fulfilled. 3.No one can separate God's people form his Love 

And in the end of this life God has a reward that cannot be imagined.
Not one person who gains this reward will say, I wish I had not.......or it was not worth what I went through.  How do I know this?  Because I know the Love of God.  You can know this too if you are willing and never give up.  

I have been through 60 plus years upon this earth.  I know some suffering.  The loss of a husband to drunk driver.  Divorce and left for a younger women.  Loss of being able to see my first daughter for years because of divorce.  Living with  very limited means.  Loss of loved ones close to me.  Days of sorrow and days of great joy.  Thus I bring this prayer today.....

Almighty God
I pray for your children today. I pray for the young girl who has left God and did not know your love yet. She blamed you for her boyfriends death with drugs.  Not yet grown mature in faith I pray she will find strength to understand the deeper meaning of life and Your purpose.  I pray for all who are suffering alone.  We shall all suffer at times but we can accept your help and not suffer alone.  You promised to help us through ALL things IF we accept your love and help.  
Thank You God for your great patience with us, and please help us understand we cannot grow in knowledge of you unless you help us.  You do not require us to overcome alone.  You require we reach out to you and grasp that mighty Hand that is reaching to us.  
In Jesus Name, 

Here is a song called "the One I love" which will touch your heart.  Third day
