“You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?” Psalm‬ ‭56:8‬ ‭

Since this Psalm was written and certainly in the days Jesus was alive some Jewish women sought to embody this verse, to live it out. The women kept a jar, a lachrymatory, they would use to literally catch their tears as they fell. The women would then pour their tears out before the Lord as an act of faith and worship to the one who sees and holds every tear! 

I love how these women lived out this Scripture. Acknowledging the One who sees our pain and cares for every single tear that we shed. Our pain in this life is precious to God, it is not overlooked.

You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?

Psalm 56:8

What is tugging on your heart today, where are you yearning for God to bring healing, peace, and restoration? Sometimes our healing is interrupted by an unwillingness to just pour out our hurt to the Lord. He is not a far off God, you can confidently come to Him and pour out every single bit of your pain knowing that He is the God who sees, loves, and redeems all that is broken.
