His joy springs forth most abundantly in souls that have been soaked in tears.
Not the tears of self-pity. Never.
But the tears of devotion and longing after Him.
Weep. But when you weep, weep in His arms.
Doubt if you must, but tell each doubt to Him candidly. You will be surprised how quickly they will melt away. His love and His smile will dispel every doubt as silently and surely as sunshine removes frost.
You cannot look in His face and doubt at the same time!"
Frances J. Roberts in Come Away My Beloved.
