There is sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently that ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief of deep contrition, and unspeakable love. – Washington Irving

There are times when it seems that everything around us is against us, but we can always look upward to God in hope and trust and know that if we hang on in faith God will bring a great reward and he will turn our tears into rejoicing.

God sees our tears and he is moved by our broken heartedness. Someone said, “If God numbers our hair, will he also not number our tears”? Therefore, let’s pray to God like David, “Turn and answer me, O Lord my God! Restore the sparkle to my eyes … (Psalm 13:3 NLT) Unfortunately that does not literally mean we will weep through the night and tomorrow everything will be ok. But instead it assures us that there will be a time of joy even in the midst of our trials.

Happiness comes and goes, but joy is long-lasting and brings true contentment. Happiness causes short-term pleasure, but joy is long-lasting. Happiness isn’t something that you can cling to during the trials of life, but real joy endures the trials. True joy is only found through a relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Hold on my child, joy comes in the morning, weeping only lasts for the night, hold on my child, joy comes in the morning. The darkest hour means dawn is just in sight. Let us therefore find victory through our tears, by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion who initiates and perfects our faith (Hebrews 12:2 NLT).

Tear – A drop of salty liquid that flows from the eye, especially because of pain or sadness (Longman Dictionary).

Psalm 30:5b
Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.
