Written by Stella Mitchell

Tears - the silent witness of 
An inward pain - that flow from eyes 
As messengers - foretelling  what the heart 
Cannot contain - where wounded bodies -
Or a broken soul - are pleading for 
Relief - to be made whole .

Though weightless - tears may 
Cascade down - like an avalanche
As from an inner - broken  dam - So 
Powerful - that even one small tear 
Can  break the heart of man - or
even set a captive free from 
Fear . 

So Powerful Indeed -

But - not all - are tears of sorrow
Loss or shame - for some may fall when
Faced with moments full of overwhelming joy 
Of Love and beauty - or some other worthy gain 
Such as - a baby's smile - a rose - a sunbeam 
Or reclining  in a comfy - easy  chair -  with 
Thoughts of loved ones - or a blackbird
Singing in a willow tree - that brings 
Back happy memories - when all 
Around seemed calm - and 
Worry free .

Or Yet Again 

Some tears may be as costly pearls
Formed from compassion - for another's 
Pain or loss - just like our Heavenly Father's
Fell - when His  Beloved Son - our Saviour - hung 
For us - upon the cross - Yet - all the time - each
Drop was paid with Love - and blood - for you
And me - because - without His willing 
Sacrifice - we'd all be lost - for all 
Eternity .

Yes - tears are God's own gift to
Us - to bring release from pain - or fear
Or sometimes even Joy -  whichever way the
Inner need - and we are told he stores them
In His heavenly jars - to give them back
To us one day - as precious 
Jewels .

Amazing  Love  Indeed .


What a wonderful day that will be when we meet
our Saviour face to face .. and He wipes away all 
the tears from our eyes .. and we will remember
them no more ..

I pray that if there is anyone reading these words
and you do not have the assurance of Heaven , 
then let me encourage you today to ask Jesus 
into your heart so you will know His forgiveness,
love and peace .. and be with Him for all eternity .

God bless you all
