I understand what it’s like to cry. I cried every month when my period started, trying to stay hopeful until I knew it was impending. Sometimes I would cry upon hearing someone else was expecting, just not me. Other times it would be a particular song at church. Even now I may think of crying when I see a glowing woman who is great with child because I want to experience it again. Still other times I cried for no apparent reason! My husband always wanted to know why I was crying. I would tell him I don’t know why. I am a woman. Sometimes we just can’t explain it. But God understands my tears.
In my Bible reading, I came upon Psalm 61:1-2 “Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” David cried, and because he cried out to God means he trusted in Him. I’m not crying because I feel sorry for myself. I am crying out to God. I am pouring out my heart to Him.
Psalm 62:8 “Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.”
P.S. I thank God for my husband. He loves me and accepts me the way I am, even if I am a crybaby!
