Overcoming Difficult Trials

GOD COLLECTS AND RECORDS ALL OF YOUR TEARS

When my brother died, I would wake up still crying in my sleep.  I did not have comforting dreams about Brian the way my sister did.  I was so jealous of the comfort she was finding in her sleep.  My dreams were teases and pranks and left me unsettled.

During the day, I would think I was all cried out.  I thought I had no more tears to cry, literally.  But then, like a wave of the sea taking a bottle out to the ocean at high tide, I too was pulled back into depression and more tears would come.  There really was an endless supply.

What a comfort it is to know that the Lord lists each of our tears on a scroll.  He is fully aware of your pain and sorrow and your tears do not go unnoticed. 

Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll–are they not in your record?  PSALM 56:8

  1. I’m so sorry about your brother…it’s incredibly painful to lose someone close. After my lifelong best friend was killed by a drunk driver (almost 6 years ago) I had only one amazing dream about her. All the others were awful and like you, I’d wake up bawling. Learning how to grieve well was a huge key to my recovery. But it still hurts.

    Sending you lots of hugs and love…

  2. Dear Ms Cloud,
    Thank you for your kind words. My brother passed on about 25 years ago. The pain has lessened but during holidays and such he is remembered. I think many of us have lost a dear one, especially if we are over 10 years of age! Brian died in a mountain climbing accident in AK. I don’t know what is worse: loosing someone suddenly and not being able to say good-bye or watching a dear on linger a slow death. Both are a trial.

  3. I’m sorry for your loss. Hope you find all the strength you need to cope up with the feeling of losing someone close to your heart.
