There are times that it’s difficult to worship.
So what do you do?
When I was in college, a speaker addressed the student body with these words:
Pray when you feel like it.
Pray when you don’t feel like it.
Pray until you feel like it.
I was amazed by the response from some of my peers. Some, like me, said, “Yeah — he’s right,” and thought nothing strange about it.
But others were angry — some very much so — that he would be so heartless, instructing people who are struggling, spiritually, to pray.
I still don’t entirely understand what the uproar was about, but I do believe that if you hope to overcome your spiritual struggles, it would be wise to do something “spiritual” — like prayer.
Job faced struggles. And he prayed. More than that, he worshiped.
This podcast speaks of the heart of Job — a heart that worshiped when worship came hard.
