Tears are not always a bad thing. I know you’ve had your fair
share lately. Did you know the Lord your God notices? He
uses these times to bring you closer to Him.
“My tears have been my food day and night, while they say
to me all day long, ‘Where is your God?’” (Psalm 42: 3)
“I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched; my eyes
fail while I wait for my God” (Psalm 69: 3).
I know it’s hard. You live for Christ, yet around every corner
there is adversity. “Where is your God?” they say. “Has He left
you? Why do you live for a God who allows pain in the world?”
“Why doesn’t He act now!” you cry out. “My problem is now.
My prayers have been numerous, but I see nothing!” Yet, do
not doubt. Walk in full confidence in your identity in Christ.
Are we on His timeline or our own? Does He not know what
He is doing? Do you really think He can’t hear? You yourself
have marveled at His brilliance, His sheer genius. Is this any
different? Can He not handle this problem, too?
“I am weary with my sighing; every night I make my bed
swim, I dissolve my couch with my tears” (Psalm 6: 6).
God sees it all, Mama. It is not pointless, this trial. It has a
very real purpose. You will one day see that. We do not see
what is around the corner. He does. Wait for that corner.
“You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in
Your bottle. Are they not in Your book?” (Psalm 56: 8)
Mama, do you not know He holds every teardrop? He holds
your heart, too. He is watching, taking account. You are not
far from Him; He is near to you.
Joy comes in the morning. Rest for your soul. No more
tears. No more worry. In Christ Jesus, your Savior, you will
find peace. That day is coming. Wait on Him. He will make
“And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and
there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any
mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed
away” (Revelation 21: 4).
Mama, joy is coming tomorrow. Rejoice in the Lord today.
He hears you. He hears your cries. He sees your tears. Keep
praying. He hears. And He will act. Take heart and rejoice in
