“I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears. (7) Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
(8) Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping. (9) The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer. (10) Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.” Psalm 6:6-10
Hello everyone and welcome back to “Sunday Inspiration!” I am so glad to have you with me today and my prayer today; is that God will truly touch the depth of our hearts, with His loving and powerful presence.
You know…I remember a time in my life, when the tears that once flowed down my cheeks, had now turned inwardly within my heart. Have you ever had a time, when you cried so much; that there were no more tears to cry? I did and once the tears stopped flowing down my face, I began to see my tears, as raindrops within the heart. It was at this time; that I began to see that the tears that watered my heart, were now becoming a language between God’s heart and mine…a language that became humbled…a language that revealed to God; that I was at my lowest and once God began to read this language of tears that had been written on the wall of my heart, I began to experience a love and compassionate spirit; that I had never felt or experienced in my life.
How many times, do we try to fight the tears…just so we don’t have to admit that there is something hurting us? Over the years, I have come to see tears, as a cleansing for the soul. Seems like with each tear that has fallen; I have found these moments to be soothing and a way to release the pain, so God could step in and begin to make amends, of the wounds that came about by evil.
As I look back to the past, I remember a time, when God led me to our Bible reading for today…in Psalm 6:6-10. As I began to soak in each word, while feeling deeply wounded from the past, God began to show me that my tears had truly become a language that was only between Him and I. When others didn’t seem to understand my problems and when Satan was lurking around…attempting to increase my problems; God was taking in each hurtful feeling…through each teardrop that fell and as He caught my tears, He used them to sooth a deep embedded pain that had wounded my heart.
Today, you may feel as though you have cried a river of tears and there are no more tears to cry. Just know that God does see the tears that are falling within your heart. Sometimes, there are just no words to say or maybe the words just won’t come but God is a god, who can look deep within the heart and see what we are experiencing and feel the pain that has kept our mouths silent.
One of my favorite quotes; that God gave me some time ago, goes like this… “When there are no words to say...only thoughts that keep reminding us of a broken moment in our lives; God will read what has been etched upon our hearts through these broken moments and will step in and make a way for us.” You know…I have come to see that numerous times in my life and moments such as these are what have actually drawn me closer to God’s heart…for He was the only One, who could understand and experience my feelings with me…the One, who became the mighty warrior I needed at that time and as He stepped in and took control of the problem that had become a furious storm within my soul, I began to see Him as more than a god…for it was at this time; that He became the best friend I could ever have.
No matter what you’re facing today and no matter how difficult life may seem; God does see the tears that flow within a broken heart and my prayer for you today; is that you will allow those tears to become a humble message between you and God…a message that says… “Lord, I truly need you!”
Blessings on your Sunday!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
