As I sat down at my local coffee shop yesterday to do some paperwork, I was rummaging through my purse. I found my tissues from the day before…I had attended the funeral of my mentor and dear friend. The Holy Spirit brought this scripture to my mind. These tissues had been soaked with tears…tears because I miss my friend and tears of joy because I know I will see him again. Not one of my tears was wasted. Not one of our sorrows is overlooked by our merciful and kind Savior. I did end up throwing my tissues away, but I had such a sense of how sacred they are to God. I am so overwhelmed by His love.
“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.”
