Quote

The Gift of Tears

by Charles Spurgeon from his sermon, "Consolation for the Despairing"

Crying is the language of pain; pain cannot cumber itself with letters and syllables and words, and so it takes its own way, and adopts a piercing mode of utterance, very telling and expressive.

Crying yields great relief to suffering. Everyone knows the benefit of having a hearty good cry: you cannot help calling it ‘a good cry.’

For, though one would think crying could never be especially good, yet it affords a desirable relief. Red eyes often relieve breaking hearts.  

Verse
Lamentations 3:31-33 ESV

For the Lord will not cast off forever, but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love; for he does not afflict from his heart or grieve the children of men.

Verse
Psalm 27:13-14 ESV

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
