"Psalms of Ascent Series", Quiet Time Coaching: Episode 196, Psalm 130v1
Psalm 130 ‘sings’ through the suffering - acknowledging and not ignoring it. The suffering is not a skeleton in a closet, nor a puzzle to be explained. It is expressed. Often Christians feels as if suffering and pain should not exist. As if they are ‘wrong’ for a person of faith. This devalues the experience and value of suffering. It denies reality. “The gospel offers a different view of suffering: in suffering we enter the depths; we are at the heart of things; we are near to where Christ was on the cross.” Peterson, Obedience, 138.
