Crying is exhausting. Your nose starts running, your head eventually hurts, and your eyes get red. Usually, at times, after you wipe your eyes and nose, and the crying cease, you get clarity and understanding. After a season of tears, you usually will have a clearer mind and you are able to articulate and express yourself.
There is power in tarrying with your tears. Tears of sorrow and tears of joy both can produce harvest. The tears of sorrow can be therapeutic and the tears of joy can be words you cannot say. There is a harvest for your tears:
In certain seasons, you may have to tarrying with your tears-in your devotional time, in prayer, and in your quiet time with the Lord. Don’t let people write you off as a crybaby or emotional, quite the contrary!
Your tears will reap a harvest of songs of joy! Your tears matter to the heart of God! Your tears will build up your children and your loved ones whom you are concerned about. Your tears are healing your land even right now!
Tarry with those tears. Labor with those tears. Reap those tears-the harvest is coming! It will be plentiful and bountiful! Your weeping is not in vain and the Lord hears the words of your tears!
And as He hears your tears, as you tarrying with them, know that the Lord is coming soon to wipe them all away (Rev. 7:17). The tarry is worth the harvest.
Peace and Blessings
