Joy Comes from Total Surrender to God — A Quote by Jeanne Guyon in “Intimacy with Christ”

“Intellectually, you can be aware of God, but you are only able to be lost in God by total and loving surrender of your will. When you have lost your own will in God, this is, indeed, the highest joy… Love, which carries the will along with it, changes you entirely. This is the true rapture: to be wholly lost in God. This is what is called transformation. You decrease and He increases within you. I want to make it perfectly clear, however, that you always remain distinct from God, and you never lose your identity in becoming one with Him.”

— Jeanne Guyon, “Intimacy with Christ”, pp 111-112
