“Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
“If the soul is full, and full of joy, what side of it will be exposed to the assault of any temptation?”
”If fear is present, the gladness that is there is an answer.”
“If there is a passion, desire, wish for pleasure of any sort, there is no need for any more-the heart is full.“
The gladness which rests in Christ will be a gladness which will allow us to fight and not grow weary, which will be unbroken by any sorrow.
God Bless You
