Psalms 126:5 “Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of Joy.”
With Shouts of HIS Praise!
Tears form the clearest ink yet most illiterate, ignoring…see no “words” inscribed on paper; whose blinded hearts know not the LORD.
On “blank pages” shall those broken pen down their mirrored thoughts. Though invisible their script, still ‘tis displayed through Moisture’s droplets.
Seen clearly JUST by CHRIST, so
in vain might seem Contrition. But GOD reads our shattered lines and then HIS love has them…rewritten!
Thus “shared” our pains with HIM by WHOSE compassions — never failing…gain we strength to soar as eagles scribing praise through skies — unveiled!
On HIS parchments then of blue,
brushed are clouds filled with provisions which upon each tear-stained page of ours HE rains… with sovereign blessings!
As HIServant drenched in the Joy of HIS SPIRIT,
Devotional: Psalms 56:8 “YOU have kept count of my troubles; put my tears in YOUR bottle. Are they not in YOUR book?
Eternally Etched in permanent ink are our names upon HIS hands and in HIS Book. In addition, our tears HE measures…even holding them within the lines in HIS hands.
So when we cry out to HIM within our dark valleys, rivers are birthed which course through our mountains of Doubt. Yet GOD sees, bottles each droplet and then outpours HIS favored rain…which washes away all our tears.
Though the struggle remain and though opposition may even grow, it is HIS presence which conquers both. With sovereign power and perfect will, CHRIST intercedes. Sometimes HE brings full rescue and, at others, deafening Silence.
But both are purposed by a heart which loves us as HIS children and works all things together for good…according to the good counsel of HIS will.
So as we lift our petitions and prayer parchments to HIS Heavens, HE sees the heart and knows our deepest anguish. What joy to know our LORD chose the cross!
Knowing completely each and every suffering just as and beyond what we do…HE died to rise again. Showing, as such, HIS victory over Death AND these same pains we experience.
Growing us in HIS Grace and in the knowledge of The HOLY SPIRIT, HE now awaits HIS own return. Until then, CHRIST rains down HIS wisdom and blessings to overwhelm our every teardrop and each heart-torn Pain!
Revelation 7:17 “For the LAMB in the midst of the throne will be their Shepherd, and HE will guide them to springs of living water, and GOD will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Hallelujah! HE is coming and will roll the clouds of the Past backwards as a scroll!
Then lifting our souls, eternally redeemed, we will enter HIS Glory where no tear shall ever be etched again! Where every sadness shall be replaced…with shouts of Joy!
Amen and amen!
