Take Your Tears to God

FAITH BOOSTER:

Take Your Tears to God [May 22,2020]

WORD OF FAITH:

My eyes will flow unceasingly, without relief, until the Lord looks down from heaven and sees.(Lamentations 3:49–50)

Also Read Lamentations 3:49–66

Last summer, an orca whale named Talequah gave birth. Talequah’s species of killer whales was endangered, and her newborn was their hope for the future. But the baby whale lived for less than an hour. In a show of grief that was watched by people around the world, Talequah pushed her dead baby whale  through the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean for seventeen days before letting her go.

Sometimes believers in Jesus have a hard time knowing what to do with grief. Perhaps we fear that our sorrow might look like a lack of hope. But the Bible gives us many examples of humans crying out to God in grief. Lament and hope can both be part of a faithful response.

Lamentations is a book of five poems that express the sorrow of people who have lost their home. They’ve been hunted by enemies and were near death (3:52–54), and they weep and call on God to bring justice (v. 64). They cry out to God not because they have lost hope, but because they believe God is listening. And when they call, God does come near (v. 57).

It’s not wrong to lament the broken things in our world or in your life. God is always listening, and you can be sure that God will look down from heaven and see you.

QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION:

  • How can you practice bringing all your emotions to God?
  • When have you felt God draw near to you in your sadness?

PRAYER OF FAITH:

Loving God, help us to remember that it’s right to lament wrongness before we can begin to change it.

FAITH BOOSTER:

God  Collects Your Tears [April 18, 2016]

WORD OF FAITH:

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.”Psalm 56:8, NLT

Do you know how important you are to God? He cares so much about every detail of your life. He cares about your thoughts, feelings and emotions. In fact, what you are going through is so important to Him that He records every sorrow and collects every tear you’ve shed. Why would God record your sorrows and collect your tears? Because He loves you so much, and He is your vindicator. He’s keeping account of every wrong that’s ever been done to you so that He can make up for every single one of them. He wants to restore everything that has ever been stolen. He wants to heal every single hurt and pain. He sees the longings and desires of your heart, and you can rest knowing that He is working things out for your good!

Today, know that you are valuable to Him. He has your best interest at heart. He is working to bring restoration and peace to you. Keep standing, keep believing and keep doing the right thing because the One who collects your tears will restore every broken place in your life!

DECLARATION OF FAITH:

“Father, thank You for loving me and setting me free. Thank You for being my vindicator. I choose to release every hurt, pain and sorrow, knowing that You will make all things new in Your time in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
