Come Ye Who Are Weary

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” Psalm 56:8

We all love to read the stories that boost us up and motivate us to “Carpe Diem”, seize the day. While those are all well and good for their timing and purposes, there are truly some stories only tears can unfold.

The Lord not only hears your cries for rescue from the internal or potentially external jail cell you find yourself trapped in, but He collects note of these things because He wants to richly bless you with a relationship with Him.

In the midst of our most sorrowful hours it would seemingly appear that we need more than a relationship with God. We often need relief from emotional trauma, sickness, loss of a loved one, financial pressure, relationship difficulties, and so forth.

The truth is, you don’t have to say a word. A mere tear drop from your beautiful face is all it takes for the Father’s compassion to take hold of you.

One of the things Holy Spirit has shared with me the last few weeks is the simple phrase “ He has compassion.”

When the world hammers down on you and pushes you to be more, do more, say more, God in his magnificent omnipresents has compassion for you. In His perfect timing the doors will open and in His perfect way everything that has come to bring us sorrow, discourage us, or harm us will be used for good.

In those moments where you believe you need more than a relationship with God, when you are desperate for relief, or desire change in your life know that the most compassionate Father is near. Partner with Him and He will share with you new horizons you can adventure on with Him. No tear goes without notice. He understands better than any one human could ever understand, because He has faced every trauma, atrocity, sorrow, and pain that there ever was on earth.

So come to Him, you who are weary, and know that He is God. He will give you true rest in His compassion. It will touch the most tender parts of your mind, body, and soul. May God Bless you today with a knowingness that He sees your tears in public and private. His compassion for you is overflowing.
