Give it to Me I’m Worth It

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

Why God does this, I’m not sure. Every time I read this verse I find myself imagining that I’m bawling my eyes out and He’s just there accumulating my tears and jotting them down. These thoughts often have a follow-up question of “Well, God, why are You just standing there taking notes of my aches? Get over here and do something about it.”

I cry sometimes when I don’t get it my way,

And because I miss the ones who chose to walk away.

Sometimes I regret the mistakes I can’t undo.

Sometimes I’m afraid I can’t see this life through.

I cry sometimes because I don’t want to do this anymore

I feel the suffering is more than it should be allowed for.

I cry when I see injustice;

a teen having his limbs chopped off because he stood up against ISIS.

I cry sometimes for my nation, the ones who are astray,

I cried for that boy who told me he loved me but really wanted to play

As a cry baby, one thing is crystal clear,

I need to learn the wisdom, of who is worth these tears.

I have since learnt that He allows the tears to run freely.

Maybe it’s more therapeutic and cathartic than we care to admit.

  1. Hey dear heart!
    Saw your dance with@TheRock, you’re a great twin! That scripture in Psalm, tears are not the intended meaning, God’s loving us SO much that He takes time, notice of(every) tear fallen, just think– He IS keeping a count because each one will be rewarded, not one tear fell in vain. Remind yourself daily how He loves you agape, never leaving or forsaking YOU, always by your side & inside of you! Allow your tears to lead you to Him as He strengthens you for the carrying of your cross, you learn tools needed to succeed, and gain wisdom that only comes from God. YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL! I’m here because I ❤ care!

    Sincerely,
    @firstladylives *LOVE*💜
