"Weep With Those Who Weep"


“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.” Romans 12:15

It’s easy to assume grieving with others is simply our gift of love and compassion to them. But God can also use those tears to do a good work in us. The losses of life - whether it be the loss of a loved one, a job, a marriage through divorce, each have the potential to lead us to unhealthy places in our heart. Undealt with hurt and pain hardens our hearts and can fill us with bitterness. The only way to soften it is for tears to fall. It's okay to cry. In fact, it is healthy. Each tear is a gift from God, they help us release the hurt and pain. Every redeemed believer - your heart is much too beautiful of a place for bitterness, resentment or unhealed pain. Psalm 147:3 says, "He [The Lord] heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds" and He uses our tears. This quote by David Wilkerson is so true, "Faith is not to get you out of a hard place but to change your heart in the hard place."

Much love and care, Pastor Pat
