Speaking Joy During Sorrow
As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 2 Corinthians 6:10
Have you ever had a moment of clarity? Of course we all have. I love when this happens. It happened more to me when I was about sixteen. I had to sit and write all of my thoughts down of all of the truths that suddenly came clear to me. It seems that the moments mostly come when you are coming out of the deep valley of sorrow. Why can't we just have them everyday? Why do they come mostly after sorrow? I don't know the answers.
Sorrow seems so familiar to some tha tthey don't want to get out of it. It is comfortable and familiar. How can a person get out of it and have some clarity or moments of truth?
ALL things work together for the good for those who love the Lord" Romans 8:28
Joy out of sorrow:
One way to get joy out of sorrow is not to speak of it out loud but only to speak of joy. Like an actor or actress just act like you are joyous. It is not to act in a hypocritacle way but rather to see how this works, like an experiment. Our speech is very powerful and eventually can rule our thoughts. This can work the other way too. If you constantly speak negative things it seems as thought negativitly will follow you.
