Centuries ago, in the Middle East, a young warrior presented an exquisite teardrop bottle to his beloved before leaving for battle. During their time of separation, his heart broken love collected the tears she wept for him in this special bottle chosen just for her.
The Psalmist knew the value of pouring out your heart felt tears when he penned the words “Put my tears in your bottle; are they not all in your book?” (Psalm 56:8)
David knew only God can deliver us from the enemies of our soul who threaten to overwhelm us in times of distress, trouble, and heartache.
Jesus our merciful High Priest understands our weaknesses, like no other. He faced the same temptations we do, yet without sin. He invites us to come boldly to the throne of grace and find help in time of need. It is there we receive healing for broken hearts, hope, and peace.
One day, Jesus will return for His beloved Bride, His Church. On that day which no man knows, He will make all things new. In an instant, His joy will be ours and He will wipe away every tear we’ve wept for Him, His church, and our loved ones.
He sees each teardrop.
He knows your heartache.
He cares for you.
