Tracy — I am so sorry that you have always hated your tears or that they made you feel weak and helpless.
I am so glad that you see a different perspective on it all and I hope and pray that the next time your tears are tempted to fall…that you let them. And that they cleanse you and strengthen you in the process. I struggled for a very long time with not being able to cry, never tearing up, not even when I knew I needed that release. Those are beautiful words, Heidi. I am so glad that God is answering your prayer.
Yet, it can hurt, but it also can be freeing and cleansing.

I pray these two things will accompany your tears. Hugs, my friend. It is so hard for me to cry. I think we all feel frustrated and powerless sometimes in our tears.

Tears of love - Katrien Nijs
His confidence in the sovereign grace of God to save the worst of sinners intensified alongside his passionate concern for perishing sinners:. I am speaking the truth in Christ — I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit — that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh.
Romans —3. The sovereignty of God, for Paul, did not make the pursuit of sinners pointless — it made it hopeful. The compassion of his heart overflowed in prayer because he knew the sovereign power of God could overcome every obstacle that sinful man raised up against his own salvation. I love the sovereignty of God. And I love the compassion of God. I would be utterly lost without it. I love the refrain that runs through the whole Bible: in the midst of judgment God remembers mercy Habakkuk Psalm is one of my favorite psalms because there is so much hope in it.
But the greatest thrill comes from seeing the sovereignty and the compassion of God interwoven in one glorious fabric of justice and mercy. One of the most beautiful and painful statements of this interweaving comes in Lamentations — God had brought horrific judgment on his own city, Jerusalem. No one doubted that this grievous event had come from the sovereign hand of God. The apostle Paul was steeped in this kind of Old Testament teaching.
This was the strong flavor of God that he savored. And God is merciful and compassionate. And we sinners — we are all guilty and helpless and responsible for our sin. If God were not compassionate, he would not want to save us.
