A Song in the Night

I’d rather walk

in the valley with Jesus

than on a mountain-top

without Him.

He gives a song

in the night. 

He sings loudly,

knitting our hearts together

with sweet chords of love.

I’d rather walk

through valley’s long trial

with the Shepherd—

than high on a mountain

without His sweet song.

Sing over me, Shepherd of my soul. Help me go forth with heart
and hands lifted up, s
inging Love’s sweet song.

 

I call to remembrance my song in the night. Psalm 77:6
He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17

He Sees, He Knows, He Cares

100_1964

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.

The Legend of the Tear Drop Bottle

“Put my tears in your bottle; are they not all in your book?”  (Psalm 56:8)  

Centuries ago, in the Middle East, a young warrior would present an exquisite teardrop bottle to his beloved before leaving for battle. During their time of separation, sometimes for years, his heart broken love would collect the tears she wept for him in this special bottle chosen just for her.

David, the Psalmist, had learned the value of tears when he penned the words above. He knew only God can deliver us from the enemies of our soul who threaten to overwhelm us in times of distress, trouble, and heartache.

There is a scroll of remembrance written about those who revere the Lord and honor His name.

“They will be mine,” says the LORD Almighty, “in the day when I make up My treasured possession.” (Malachi 4: 17). That is why we have a great High Priest who has gone to heaven, Jesus the Son of God.  Let us cling to him and never stop trusting Him. (Hebrews 4:14 NLT).

Jesus understands our weaknesses, like no other. He faced the same temptations we do, yet He did not sin. He invites us to come boldly to the throne of our merciful and gracious God.  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. He will wipe away every tear we’ve wept for Him, His church, and loved ones.

He sees each teardrop.

He knows your heartache. 

He cares for you.

Prayer: Father in Heaven, I pray for those with broken hearts. For those who have lost loved ones. For those who need Your comfort. May Your Holy Spirit draw them into Your everlasting arms of love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will no longer be any death; mourning, crying, or pain; the first things have passed away. (Rev. 21:4 NASB).
