Why Does God Allow Suffering, Pain & Evil?

As a final reflection on suffering, pain and evil, Christ Tiegreen has suggested:

Instead of asking God, "Why me?" which will likely yield no concrete, definitive answer, it's better to ask, "God, what is it that you want to reveal or show me in this situation? What do you want to do in this?" Consider what you're experiencing as a platform for God to show / reveal Himself and to draw you closer to Him.

We know how Job's life ended — we have the final chapter. The final chapter of your life has not yet been recorded. Can you trust God to work "all things together for good" in your life and trust the promises He makes for an eternal life for those who do?
