Tears that come from loss and hurt. Painful sorrow. Broken dreams.
Tears long held back from flowing. Tears that must come in order to cleanse the soul. To free the pain.
They come unexpected. Once released they threaten to overcome. They can not be stopped but must be felt.
Tears cried and collected. Collected by God who comforts and heals. He understands each tear that falls.
Gently and tenderly He allows the tears to flow. He knows they are needed, that they are good.
Once cried, He will wipe the tears of His dear child and collect them in a bottle so that they will no longer be forgotten, but free
Free from they depths of where they were once hidden and forgotten.
Inspired by Ps 56:8: You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book?
