Inexpressible and Glorious Joy - 1 Pet.1.8

I have just finished a 7 month reading and study of the gospel of John. I told you I read for depth and not distance. It was the most meaningful and rich study I have done in that book. My practice is to go from a gospel to an epistle and I chose 1 Peter. This morning I was reading 1 Peter 1.8-9 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
I asked myself this question, "when was the last time I experienced inexpressible and glorious joy at the thought of my salvation"? It seems too long. I want to take the time to think again of this great salvation and experience this kind of joy. You?
Are you experiencing inexpressible and glorious joy?
