Galatians 5:22  But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness). . . Amplified Bible

Joy is not gush; Joy is not jolliness. Joy is simply perfect acquiescence in God’s will, because the soul delights itself in God Himself. “I delight to do thy will,” said Jesus, though the cup was the Cross, in such agony as no man knew. It cost Him blood. Oh, take the Fatherhood of God in the blessed Son the Savior, and by the Holy Ghost; rejoice in the will of God, and nothing else. Bow down your heads and your hearts before God, and let the will. the blessed will of God, be done.   Prebendary Webb-Peploe

I have a heritage of joy
That yet I must not see;
The Hand that bled to make it mine
Is keeping it for me.
My heart is resting on His truth
Who hath made all things mine.
Who draws my captive will to Him
And makes it one with Thine!
A. I. Waring
