Speaking of tears

September 27, 2017 — 3 Comments

 “Whenever you find tears in your eyes, especially unexpected tears, it is well to pay the closest attention.  
They are not only telling you something about the secret of who you are,
but more often than not God is speaking to you through them of the mystery of where you have come from
and is summoning you to where,
if your soul is to be saved,
you should go next.”  Frederick Beuchner


“By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept
when we remembered Zion.
There on the poplars
we hung our harps,
for there our captors asked us for songs,
our tormentors demanded songs of joy;
they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
How can we sing the songs of the Lord
while in a foreign land?”
Psalm 137:1-4


“Christ says ever and always, “Give me your pain, your sin, your sorrow.
My Life I give in exchange for all that finds you.”
Leanne Payne in Restoring the Christian Soul

    Such beautiful reflections to ponder, Annie. Where is our home? Where do we belong?Where can we express ourselves authentically, and be recognized as our true selves? Who will accept and comfort us as we seek that place? Thank you for posting this.
