    Joy quotes by:    

Sorrow does not take away, but adds to the Christian's joy.

    Author: Lester Roloff

Happiness is caused by things that happen around me, and circumstances will mar it; but joy flows right on through trouble; joy flows on through the dark; joy flows in the night as well as in the day; joy flows all through persecution and opposition.

    Author: D.L. Moody

The Lord gives his people perpetual joy when they walk in obedience to him.

    Author: D.L. Moody

How sweet all at once it was for me to be rid of those fruitless joys which I had once feared to lose!... You drove them from me, You who are the true, the sovereign joy. You drove them from me and took their place, You who are sweeter than all pleasure.

    Author: Augustine

There is a joy which is not given to the ungodly, but to those who love Thee for Thine own sake, whose joy Thou Thyself art. And this is the happy life, to rejoice to Thee, of Thee, for Thee; this it is, and there is no other.

    Author: Augustine

I think beloved, it will not be hard for you to learn. The angels of heaven rejoice over Sinners that repent: saints of God, will not you and I do the same? I do not think the church rejoices enough. We all grumble enough and groan enough: but very few of us rejoice enough. When we take a large number into the church it is spoken of as a great mercy; but is the greatness of that mercy appreciated?

When the heart is full of joy, it always allows its joy to escape. It is like the fountain in the marketplace; whenever it is full it runs away in streams, and so soon as it ceases to overflow, you may be quite sure that it has ceased to be full. The only full heart is the overflowing heart.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon
    Source: The Sympathy of the Two Worlds, Sermon, Luke 15:10.

Do you want comfort? Nothing can give it so much as the thought of His coming. There may be sorrow in the night, but joy enough--fulness of joy--in that morning when we shall see Him as He is: fulness of joy in being like Him and with Him for evermore.

    Author: G.V. Wigram

If you and I are to meet Christ with joy when He comes, we must make quite sure that our consciences are up to the mark with Him where He is in God's presence; able to be in identification with Him up there in the light: if not, you will not be able to meet His face with joy.

    Author: G.V. Wigram

If the life of Christ is flowing through us, the water from the Rock turning the wheel, as it flows into the heart, it will fill us with joy; and if so, we cannot contain it, it must flow out.

    Author: G.V. Wigram

No one can get Joy by merely asking for it. It is one of the ripest fruits of the Christian life, and, like all fruits, must be grown.

    Author: Henry Drummond
    Source: Pax Vobiscum, p. 50.

The aim of God in creating and redeeming us is the delight He Himself enjoys in seeing His creatures delight in Him. As Edwards said, "[The] glorifying of God is nothing but rejoicing in the manifestations of Him." In other words, the purpose of the knowledge of God is the enjoyment of God because "God is most glorified in you when you are most satisfied in Him."
