When the Lord fills us with joy, we can cry with joy. When we hear sad news such as the global child sex trafficking I posted about, we can cry too. In this case, we feel sorry for the children, but deep down we feel sad because the evildoers are hurting the Lord God who loves them. Since we feel the pain for the sake of our Lord, we are drawn even closer to him and our suffering becomes bearable and even sweet. Yes, the Lord always gives joy to those who love him!
