Mary and Martha went through the lose of their brother. But Jesus used this opportunity so that the faith of His disciples and Mary and Martha could be strengthened. So that they could see who Jesus truly was and so that He and the Father would be glorified. Their suffering was necessary so that they could learn that they could completely trust in Jesus.
God allows suffering in our life too. But He does this so we can learn to depend on Him; to put our faith and trust in Him. We should also learn to be thankful for these hard situations because many times this is when we learn and grow.
“For if He causes grief, then He will have compassion according to His abundant loving-kindness. For He does not afflict willingly or grieve the sons of men.” Lamentations 3:32-33
