Quote: A happy and rejoicing spirit

Unhappy spirit, cast down under thy sins, multitudes of sins, years of sins! - heavily burdened as thou art, and pierced through with sorrows, thou mayest look to God, and hope, for "HE delighteth in mercy." His mercy can make thee a clean and beautiful, a happy and rejoicing spirit. God will be "delighted" to make thee "equal to the angels." so humble, so loving is thy God, and so earnestly does He long to bless thee, that behold, He stands at thy door and knocks.                                   from Joy and Strength Selected by Mary Wilder Tileston
