Suffering and worship: Addendum

Another thought that was in my head this morning, but momentarily escaped:

One of the reasons we don't fully understand the relationship between worship and suffering is that we imagine worshipping in spite of suffering. That's not Job's way, or Jesus'. We must instead learn to worship in our suffering. And while this seems very challenging, I really think one of the biggest obstacles to worshipping Him this way is the former screwed-up notion. Once that's dismissed, we're free to cry, "Abba, Father."
