Bible: 2 Corinthians 7:4-7

A Letter That Caused Sadness

7:4 I have great confidence in you; I take great pride 1  on your behalf. I am filled with encouragement; 2  I am overflowing with joy in the midst of 3  all our suffering. 7:5 For even when we came into Macedonia, our body 4  had no rest at all, but we were troubled in every way – struggles from the outside, fears from within. 7:6 But God, who encourages 5  the downhearted, encouraged 6  us by the arrival of Titus. 7:7 We were encouraged 7  not only by his arrival, but also by the encouragement 8  you gave 9  him, as he reported to us your longing, your mourning, 10  your deep concern 11  for me, so that I rejoiced more than ever.
