I was listening to satellite radio when “Who’ll Stop the Rain” came on by C.C.R. My crying has been like rain…just washing away the pain of my broken heart. I have always been a person who cries. People called me a cry baby when I was little. I use to be so ashamed of my behavior, but now I just embrace it! My recent crying spells have been reduced to a quick daily shower. Kind of like when you are at the beach and around 3 pm you get a nice little downpour. Something to cool things off and restore balance. I still feel like Humpty Dumpty; trying to put the pieces of my heart back together again. I am more whole than before, just not fully restored. That day will come as this too shall pass!
I’ve always held on to God’s word to give me strength and comfort. These two scriptures in particular have been a constant companion. Psalm 126:5 says, Those who sow in tears, will reap with songs of joy.” Weeping may remain for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5.
What are you sowing today? Is it something you want to reap?
