Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
Where is the source of Joy again? It is rooted in Faith. You haven't actually seen Christ yet, but you believe in Him and know He is coming. He is as real to you... No. He is more real to you than any trial that you are facing. You love Him, and these things fill you with joy.
Be careful. People may think you are weird.
