Losing Peace and Joy

I remember talking to a girl here in this church two or three years ago. She said, "Jill, I've lost my joy, I've lost my peace, and I want it back."

"Where did you lose it?" I asked.

"That has nothing to do with this," she replied. "Help me to get it back."

"But where did you lose it?"

"I don't want to talk about that."

But eventually she did talk about it. She lost it when she moved in with her boyfriend. That'll do it.
