Amen. I think there is a misconception that the joy of the Lord equates never having sufferings here on earth. How contrary to the Word is that? My joy in the Lord comes from knowing that He paid the price for my sin and that one day I will live with Him free from all pain and suffering, but until that time I live in a fallen world.

You're right, I've heard a lot of people say that (as a way of denigrating Christianity) and it's just not true. Paul was shown the tribulations he was going to go through and he still did what the Holy Spirit guided him to do.
