It appears to be a contradiction, but in TRUTH, they are ONE AND THE SAME. When Sorrow is so deep, and our sins smother our Souls in hopelessness, we are taken to a place where TRUTH meets SIN. If we choose TRUTH, then our REPENTANCE takes us to the place of FORGIVENESS! When we know we are FORGIVEN, WE HAVE TEARS OF JOY. Jeremiah 31:9, "Tears of JOY will stream down their faces, and I will lead them home with great care." Where TRUTH, LOVE, SIN, SORROW, REPENTANCE AND FORGIVENESS MEET, WE KNOW TEARS OF JOY!
