Pleased to Crush

Suffering doesn't appear to be the most cheerful of subjects, so why discuss it?

How could it be the will of God to crush or bruise the soul of His righteous servant?

At first it appears more than a little disturbing when God seems to be saying that He takes pleasure in crushing us; but let's take a closer look at what is really going on. It starts with the Suffering Servant and ends with us:

A crushed soul seems to be totally ineffective. Yet God can work through a crushed soul as the person holds on to his faith and love.

To learn how we can take comfort in this idea, you'll have to read my article here and I would be delighted if you came back to let me know what you think of it.
