God dwells with those that mourn; however, he does so to comfort them, in order that the outcome of their mourning may be their rejoicing. -There is a great difference between being mournful or being melancholy and despondent. The Lord delights when one mournfully humbles himself, tearfully seeks grace, and is active by faith to lift himself up again; being melancholy, however is displeasing to God (and men). Therefore mourn at the appropriate time, but flee from habitual melancholy and accustom yourself to be joyful!  Wilhelmus à Brakel
