Don’t despise your tears.
I’m not a cry-er. As a matter of fact, I’m annoyed when women cry.
But between the pandemic, the racial unrest, and going back to work to empty halls, I have been an emotional mess.
Does anyone else find themselves more emotional since March? Well, I have good news for you.
When we, the Righteousness of God, go through the valley of tears, we make it a source of spring water. We go from strength to strength (Psalms 84:6).
According to the internet, spring water provides much needed oxygen to the body and the brain, aids in good digestion, helps us maintain a healthy weight, and tastes great. Spring water is refreshing for our body.
According to the Bible, spring water will satisfy our thirsty souls (Rev. 21:6).
I can honestly say, this season I have walked through the valley of tears. But I can also say, the refreshing spring waters of God has sustained me. He has wiped away my tears and I’ve been drawn into His presence, going from strength to strength.
Our tears are watering the barren places in our hearts. Softening those areas in our heart that have been harden by life, by disappointment, by regret. Those tears are positioning us for a mighty move of God.
We are in the valley of weeping but we are journeying to the mountain of promise. Weeping may endure in this season but joy is coming. Dancing is next on the agenda.
Dont despise or suppress your tears. They are healing your heart. They are producing springs of living water.
“Blessed and greatly favored is the man whose strength is in You, In whose heart are the highways to Zion. Passing through the Valley of Weeping ( Baca), they make it a place of springs; The early rain also covers it with blessings. They go from strength to strength [increasing in victorious power]; Each of them appears before God in Zion.”
Psalms 84:5-7 AMP
