Today With Tears

Today with tears I cannot hide, I know still He's on my side and when I'm at the darkest hour; He remains my mighty tower.

My life at times has seemed mere a glance, yet I know my being here is not by chance.

Today with tears I cannot contain; I know they are here because of pain and though my life is stained of sin; He remaineth yet my closest friend.

Though my very family dislike or love me not; it is with Jesus Christ I am ner forgot.

Today with tears I now can cry and I hope they flow until I die, for it is for the love I have and not that I have not; I do cry.

Written by Bob Wood

Psalms 126....When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. ... (2) ... Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them. ... (3) ... The Lord hath done great things for us; wherefore we are glad. ...(4) ...Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south. ...(5) ... They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. ...(6) ... He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Most of us do not claim our tears as a blessing but they most certainly are.. Tears do so much for us.. Men try to hold back tears for fear of appearing weak in some way thus society believes men do not have the deep feelings most women do.. Tears help us to vent a wide number of feelings and emotions including grief, pain and joy.. However those who do not feel cannot cry.. Maybe they have convinced themselves no one or no thing can make them cry.. It could be they have never really been loved in a way that others have been loved.. Some put a loved one in the ground and find they can't shed a tear.. They often go for a long period before they can express their grief, or maybe they express it in ways not so healthy, as becoming angry and or depressed.. Tears often come gushing when we experience real joy.. One man explained if your head does not leak, it will explode.. Whatever the case, we should thank God for the blessing of tears, for the blessing to feel and express emotions that befall us in this world.. We must remember that the blessing of tears will be replaced with a new song, with smiling and rejoicing in heaven.. Our most expressive expression of emotion and love will be replaced in heaven because we will experience first hand God's precious love in a way no mortal man ever could.. Use God's blessing of tears wisely.. Praise Him for allowing you to feel joy and to have at times a broken heart and compassion on your fellow mankind.. The next time you shed tears remember it is yet another way God spreads His love in and through you.. May God Really BlessYou!. Keep Shining and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance, you pray for me.
