Tears are a Language God Understands

Just heard this lovely song today, filled with such truth! Praying that it is with you when you are going through a hard time - God hears, sees and knows all you are going through - trust in Him!

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



Tears are a Language God Understands

Often you wonder why tears come into your eyes
And burdens seem to be much more than you can bear
But God is standing near, He sees your falling tears
And tears are a language God understands.

God sees the tears of a brokenhearted soul
He sees your tears and hears them when they fall
God weeps along with man and He takes him by the hand
Tears are a language God understands.

When grief has left you low it causes tears to flow
When things have not turned out the way that you had planned
But God won't forget you His promises are true
And tears are a language God understands.

God sees the tears of a brokenhearted soul
He sees your tears and hears them when they fall
God weeps along with man and He takes him by the hand
Tears are a language that my God He understands.

God weeps along with man and He takes him by the hand
Tears are a language God understands.

God bless!

Rejoice in the Saviour who is Lord over every circumstance

Hi there!

Sorry about the lack of posting lately - I hope to be getting stuck back into writing up posts soon! :D I have a little bedside daily devotional by Kay Arthur that has had some really insightful readings that I thought I would share with you today. Here they are, with the commentary from the devotional in italics. :)

A Matter of Obedience 

"At the end of the days I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my reason returned to me, and I blessed the Most High, and praised and honored Him who lives forever...He does according to His will among the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay his hand or say to him, “What have you done?” ~ Daniel 4:34-35

Are you in a predicament? You could not be where you are without the Lord's foreknowledge. God is soverign: He rules over all, nothing happens without His permission. Rejoicing is a matter of obedience - an obedience that will start you on the road to peace and contentment.

Rejoice!

"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!" ~ Philippians 4:4

Do you want to know a sure way to have victory and peace in the midst of any situation? Rejoice! The minute you begin rejoicing, your circumstances cease to control you. The command to rejoice does not mean rejoicing in your circumstances; it means rejoicing in your Savior who is Lord over every circumstance. 


Be Content

"I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am." ~ Philippians 4:11

Yes, Beloved, circumstances can also rob us of our joy. The apostle Paul was well aware of this as He wrote to the believers at Philippi, for He Himself was a prisoner of Rome. Yet Paul lived in peace and contentment despite his circumstances. How? Christ was his life. All he wanted was for Jesus to be exalted in his body, whether by life or by death.

A Steadfast Spirit

"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." ~ Psalm 51:10

Can you change whatever is robbing you of joy? Turn it around? Rectify it? Live without it? If there is nothing you can do to change it, then be obedient, walk in faith, and forget those things which are behind and press on toward the prize of your high calling in Christ Jesus.


Also... I read a BRILLIANT article today,  I highly recommend you read it! It can be found here: http://www.feminagirls.com/2014/02/24/fight-for-us/#more-6205
