The deeper that sorrow carves into our being, the more room is made available for joy to settle in. Through suffering comes the highest joy.
Only vines transplanted from Gethsemane can yield such heavenly grapes. No one can delight in the taste that has not tasted the fruit from the vineyards of Calvary, the blood that was shed for us. Sorrow is a prerequisite to joy as it comes in the form of relief.
