Overflow with joy!

snoopy and charlieWhen the Spirit of God comes down to man and overshadows him with the fullness of His inspiration, then the human soul overflows with joy, for the Spirit of God fills with joy whatever He touches.  In the world you will be sorrowful, but when I see you again, your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you’ (Jn. 16:21-22). Yet however comforting may be this joy which you now feel in your heart, it is nothing in comparison with that joy of which the Lord Himself by the mouth of His Apostle spoke: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for them that love Him’ (I Cor. 2:9).
