The bitterness and joy of the heart

As the cross we bear is unknown to all others, we also have the heart’s joy that will not be shared with strangers. Upon realizing our extreme acceptance by Him, I propose that standing in this right relationship with God is the “secret” joy of the heart. This joy can only be shared with those who also walk the path of faith. – Teresa #Jesus-ourguiltoffering #familyofGod

Proverbs 14:9-10 English Standard Version (ESV)

Fools mock at the guilt offering,

but the upright enjoy acceptance.[a]


The heart knows its own bitterness,

and no stranger shares its joy.
