True and Perfect Joy   Leave a comment

“True and perfect joy means enduring even painful circumstances, failure, and rejection with patience and love, without losing heart. This has been the lesson of Christian spiritual teachers from the apostles onward. The ground of this joy-inducing love remains what it always has been: Jesus alone, to whom we must look with attentiveness, gladness, and hope.” ~David Rensberger
