Deepest joy tinged with sorrow

My sister posted this on her Facebook yesterday and I keep reading it and re-reading it because there is SO much truth to it! Just thought I would share. By the way, this is her writing, not a quote from someone else:

“Has anyone else discovered that the deepest joy found in Christ is tinged with, for lack of a better way to describe it, sorrow? It’s almost inexplicable, but maybe the sorrow is the feeling of our natural will and fears and doubts dying, and the joy is our whole surrendered self experiencing the unmatched freedom, peace, and love given so freely by Jesus. He is SO good!!”

My soul heartily agrees with this!!
