Joy unspeakable.

Joy in the Bible is the means by which we are sustained in suffering…and joy is that for which suffering is preparing us.” John Piper 

“For the Christian, joy is not the absence of suffering and adversity, but the nearness of God in our adversity.” Bob Deffinbaugh 

1 Peter 4:13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christs sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
