I read this from Hannah Whitall Smith this morning:
“Our souls are of such a divine origin that no other joy but God can ever satisfy them. God has made the soul for this high destiny, and His object, therefore, in all the discipline and training of life, is to bring us to the place where we will find our joy in Him alone.”
It’s such a wonderful comfort to understand life like this. Whatever is happening to you–whatever disappointment, trial, or even happy experience–works to drive you into the presence of God where we may find our true joy and highest good.
