Your Tears Are Not Wasted

your tears are not_wasted

Your tears are not wasted….it is said that tears are our language that God only understands. Tears are bottled by angels and are precious to God. His word tells us that. By the inspiration of God’s Spirit, the Psalmist David wrote:

“Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?” ~ Psalm 56: 8 KJV “Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy.” ~ Psalm 126:5 ESV

For years we’ve been conditioned to believe that crying is a sign of weakness. Not true! You and I can now put the many tears we’ve shed into context. No longer should we feel the need to give an explanation for why we cry. We cry when there is sadness, a loss of some kind, pain inflicted upon our body, soul, spirit or emotion…..

Today I cried. I cried because I am feeling the loss of my friend who will be travelling to another part of the world for six weeks. To some it is not an awfully long time. And you’re right, I agree.

But here I am still processing the many thoughts that have come to mind. In part, I have come to the realization that there is a greater purpose in God for our deep connection with each other. There is connectivity also as it relates to our destiny. Our last conversation before travel, ended with my friend saying to me, “please continue to pray for me.” I was so deeply moved, I could not contain myself when we both hung up the telephone…..

The hope that I have though is that the time will eventually come when those same tears that we have all shed at one time or another, God will turn them into His favor and pour upon us blessings that we will not have room enough to contain. Have faith that God Himself will swallow up sadness, pain and death in victory. God will wipe away tears from all faces. (Isaiah 25:8) 

Many others have testified and have assured us of the wonderful promises of God. Through them God continues to give us the comfort as revealed by His Spirit. He says, “They [God’s people] shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb [Jesus Christ Himself] which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall  lead them into living fountains of waters; and God shall wipe away ALL TEARS from their eyes.” ~ Revelation 7:16-17

YOUR TURN….

Have you ever felt such a deep connection to someone else that when they are away from you, even for the least amount of time, you felt a painful separation and a loss?

What are some of the other times that you find yourself shedding tears?

  1. A beautiful reminder! I find myself tearing and crying when something is moving to my soul. A beautiful gesture, or something thoughtful usually gets me crying.

  2. What a beautiful reminder! Far too often I believe that tears are wrong! You’re completely right that they’re not! God is the one to dry our tears and He draws us to Himself through them.

    • You are perfectly right Susannah. For years I was made to believe that tears was a sign of weakness, but now I know different. Thank God for His word that makes us wise in the things of His. Blessings!
