Quote of the Day

This [You can have joy in the midst of unrelenting pain] is the precedent for “consider it pure joy…when you face trials of many kinds” (James 1:3). The joy in this case is not a denial of pain. It is joy that something wonderful is taking place. The person in trials has a opportunity to observe faith being refined, perseverance developed, and maturity attained. These are a joy to behold, whether they are being nurtured in us or in others. [Welch, Edward T., Depression A Stubborn Darkness (Punch Press, 2004), pg. 265]
