Read this a few days ago and it's still rolling in the Deep of my soul. I pass it along here as something worth considering, contemplating and copying. Here you go...
"The difference between a Christian life with or without joy is he difference between a boat being driven along by a tired oarsmen or by a sail full of wind. Without the winds of joy we may make progress, at least on calm days-but it will be slow, painful, and exhausting. And on a day when the waves of circumstances are against us, we can only be driven backward, no matter how resolved the will."
