Which comes first? joy or understanding?
is there a rule, an order?

I don’t think so.

Sometimes understanding leads to joy
the happy comfort from “aha, I see!”

And sometimes joy leads to understanding
you see a new view resting in God’s goodness

And sometimes joy just leads to joy

Because joy is the thing that fills the empty corners
that understanding can’t reach.
