He's Writing My Story & Knows About Every Tear

He's Writing My Story & Knows About Every Tear

Psalm 56:8 “You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?”

Our God is so ridiculously personal with us. Even our tears are sacred to him. Can you think of anyone else that would keep track of every single tear for every single person? 

One of my favorite things about my dad is that he is easily moved to tears. Whether it be in shared celebration or shared mourning, he does not hesitate to empathize in this way. He gets choked up over the faithfulness and goodness of God often, and it’s humbling to observe. It’s the way that he was created, but he also does not resist it. In a culture that seems to discourage men from showing emotion, I cherish this attribute in him so dearly. His heart is tender. 

My earthly father has shown me a tenderness that most similarly reflects that of my Father God. This has been such a gift in my life that I do not take for granted. God’s love for me is without conditions. Fully pure, fully available, fully mine as His daughter. He’s writing my story and He knows about every tear. He keeps them in a bottle as if they are treasure. He draws near to me and pursues me despite my wandering. I can’t understand it, but I am blown away by it! 

I was recently introduced to a business called “Bottle of Tears” ~ when words fall short, they create beautifully handcrafted gifts of hope and comfort. Their purpose centers around the truth that God sees you and you are never alone. I bought a pair of earrings after learning about their mission that constantly reminds me of this scripture. I need tangible promptings of His nearness. His intentionality with me. There is none like Him! 

What are some ways that you actively encounter the intimacy of our God?

Dear Sister, we’ve got you covered! My HOPE for the women who will attend the Wheat + Honey retreat in 2024? Jesus, we believe that whoever is meant to be at this retreat WILL BE THERE. Each year, you are faithful. Each year, you bring the women that need deep refresh, soul rest, and a meaningful reset. With the theme of “KNOWN”, we agree that you want these women to feel seen. All they have to do is show up to the weekend, and you will do the rest of the work! What freedom and comfort that b...

Women from different places, walking in different stages ~ unlikely community? WATCH IT WORK. You’ll bond over vulnerable small group discussions (some may even name their small group squad ~ you know who you are LOL), lounging at the beach club and laughing about who gets the worst sunburn, sitting cozy out on the porches commiserating about the dating app scene (a big yikes), or watching an extraordinary Watercolor beach sunset sharing so much gratitude. Seeing the women that attend experie...

Are you dreaming of a fulfilling break from reality? Imagine this…First steps on the beach revealed bright white sugary sand against the shimmering emerald waters of the Gulf. Breathing deeply, eyes closing, soaking in the delicious salty air aromas. Digging my toes into the warm sand, grounding myself in a delightful way. Letting the sun kiss my skin in a long awaited reunion for this pasty gal, lol. Hearing the crashing of waves, the buzz of laughter, and the soft tones of chatter. Feeling ...
