Nearly all of us at one time or another have shed tears about situations or people close to our heart. Our tears are a reflection from the overflow of pain.
Pslams 126:5 says “They that sow in tears shall reap in Joy”. The bible also says that God shall wipe all tears from our eyes. When the reaping season comes our tears of pain and anguish will be wiped away and replaced with tears of Joy.
Your tears are never wasted they ascend to God as a living memorial of your request to him. Psalms 56:8 says that God collects our tears and keeps them in a bottle. Can you imagine the amount of bottles God has and yet he is intimate with each tear drop in each bottle.
Do you remember the tears of anguish Hannah cried to God in 1st Samuel chapter 1? She desperately wanted a child and the chapter states that she was in “bitterness” of soul about her longing.
What ever situation you have lifted up to God in prayer, your tears of sorrow will be turned to tears of Joy. Continue to cast that burden up to God, release your heart to him in prayer because he has you and the situation you are going through in his hand. He has promised to never leave you or forsake you. He has said that his name is written in the palm of his hand.
The Lord is your glory and the lifter of your head (Pslam 3:3). Be encouraged dear heart for The Lord himself is your refuge and strength. Your time to reap is around the corner.
