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?

Too much emphasis on passing time for hope
Too much emphasis on passing time for hope

June 19, 2024

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 (ESV)“Once this month is over, I’ll feel better!” “If I can just get past this week, then I’ll have relief.” If I had a dollar for every time I’ve thought a passing of time would bring me more comfort, I’d be significantly more rich than what is currently accumulating in my bank account. Can you relate? The grass is not only greener on the other side of the hill, it’s also greener on the other side of the hourglass. If...
