3 Things About Your Tears

“Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.”

– Henry Ward Beecher


No tear is ever wasted. Each and every tear has a tale behind it. God values the tears we shed, and even the psalmist declares, “You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book” (Psalm 56:8). I collect some things, and those things that are valuable I keep in a glass bottle so that they can be kept safe and I can still see them. Imagine God keeping every one of your tears and storing them in a bottle. Is this a metaphor or for real? I don’t know, but either way, it shows the tenderness of God’s heart for us.

She is Broken, and She is Beautiful.

There’s never a good reason for calls so early, and my heart immediately began pounding when I answered the phone. A dear church member was on the other end, her voice thick with tears and panic. Her husband had died unexpectedly in the early morning hours. It was difficult to wrap my mind around this sudden news, though surely her disbelief was far greater than mine. Her husband, Ed, had stood in my house just forty-eight hours prior, working to get my furnace going on a bitterly cold day and changing out a light switch in my dining room.

I woke my pastor-husband and thrust the phone into his hands. In that moment, I pictured Ed zooming through the church halls in his wheelchair with my two-year-old in his lap the way he did on the many Sundays that Ed’s physical pain was too much for walking and standing. The first time he scooped my son up into his lap and took off in the chair, Ed’s wife was a nervous wreck. I laughed and told her not to worry. I could tell my toddler was having the time of his life. Every Sunday after church, my son had no qualms about climbing up in his buddy’s lap in the wheel chair and commanding him to go. They rode all around the church building, my son squealing when Ed would lean the chair back on two wheels or let him put on the brakes. No man’s life can be reduced to one endearing memory, but this was the scene on a loop in my head that morning.

“So if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; 

if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.” (1 Corinthians 12:26)

4 Approaches To Prayer

“Prayer is the nearest approach to God.” – William Law


Praying in Humility

The Bible says that God resists everyone who has pride and will extend His grace only to those who are humble (James 4:6), so we must come to God in deep reverence and respect but also in a state of great humility. In ancient times, if you didn’t bow before the king, you were dead. Should we not more so pay greater respects to the King of the universe? Most of the worship in the Old Testament was done by lying prostrate out of a deep, abiding respect and fear of God.
