Our tears are a physical lubricant and cleanser for our eyes, they are a physical cleansing process for our Eye Gate.
However, tears are also produced as a result of great emotion. Whether the emotion is joy, pain, pleasure or awe, the reproduction of those tears have an impact on the person experiencing the tears and the person witnessing the tears.
I will focus on the tears that produce pain and the number of women, who believe they don't have to cry because it makes them look weak or weary. Your willingness to cry a situation out, relieves the heart of great pressure. When we walk around with a heavy heart, it weighs down your spirit, mind and body. Your soul is at complete unrest.
Crying does not make us weak, it just exhibits a human side of us. It can also be quite therapeutic for you. Have you ever had such a good cry that it almost appears as if your tear ducts have dried out. You wake up the next day with no desire to cry at all. Niagara Falls has come to a complete freeze.
I am privileged to speak with many women and I have had a good number of them tell me that they don't cry. We know that there are medical reasons why someone can not produce tears, however, what about the emotional reasons.
Anyone can become so hardened in their heart and jaded by the trials of life that they sometimes lose the ability to feel. Am I trying to single out those who do not cry, absolutely not. However, I will say that you certainly need an out. Carrying secrets, hurts and burdens with no relief insight will cause you to develop ailments in other areas of your body.
. The bible has several scriptures and more that speak of our tears:
It is also recorded that Jesus wept when he heard about his friend Lazarus' death.
I could not find a scripture that singled out crying as a weakness. The scriptures refer to our tears as a moment in time. Our tears are collected and recorded. There is a season for tears and some only stay for a night. But, because of the gift of "New Mercies, Daily", we can rest on the fact that the tears will not always be part of our daily routine.
You tears are simply the words your heart and mouth cannot express. Next time you want to let some tears flow, feel free to do so. The truth is you might feel that much stronger when it is all said and done.
Meditate on that!
