Joy Overflowing

Jesus offered thanksgiving for the trial, the suffering that would break and crush him, yet give him an overflowing of joy.

Out of the most severe trial their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. | 2 Corinthians 8:3

When we give thanks for the suffering, for the trial, when we see his blueprints behind the disaster, and we can be grateful for it, then there is joy overflowing. And that joy, it leaves us wanting to give it away, share it, despite the fact that we are desperately poor in hardship. We find our self rich and generous, and so very full with joy.
