They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Psalm 126:5
Has any nation had a history like Israel's? But what about you? What is your history?
The Egyptians had a custom. They would capture their tears in little bottles and seal them up. They saved their tears of joy often.
Are your tears in God's bottle? Has He sealed them up to remember them?
About 3,000 years ago David trusted God to remember his tears:
Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears in thy bottle: are they not in thy book? Psalm 56:8
Time goes away as I read this. How can anyone not love the Old Testament. It is filled with raw emotion.
