Does the phrase, "suffering brings us closer to God" sound like something a Jewish person might say?

I’m in a writing class and one of my classmates has a character in her story, a Jewish woman being hidden in a Christian home in Nazi occupied Netherlands, saying the line, “But I do not complain. As you know, suffering brings us closer to God, and by this point, he and I should be rubbing elbows.”

I don’t recall ever hearing anything like this spoken in either a secular or religious Jewish home.
