Hope in Crying


God doesn't have a problem with our tears.


Crying helps us physically as well as emotionally.

"The researchers found that…emotional tears contained far more toxic biological byproducts. Weeping, they concluded, is an excretory process which removes toxic substances that normally build up during emotional stress."


"The simple act of crying also reduces the body’s manganese level, a mineral which affects mood…"


"The researchers concluded that chemicals built up by the body during stress were removed by tears, which actually lowered stress." ~The Miracle of Tears – Answers in Genesis


Crying does not make us weak.  Crying makes us human.

"Emotional tears are a response which only humans have, for only people can weep. All animals that live in air produce tears to lubricate their eyes. But only people possess the marvellous system that causes crying." ~The Miracle of Tears – Answers in Genesis


Crying is healthy.

Suppressing tears increases stress levels, and contributes to diseases aggravated by stress, such as high blood pressure, heart problems and peptic ulcers."~The Miracle of Tears – Answers in Genesis


Don't hold back your tears when your heart is breaking.  Let them flow.  You will feel better physically and emotionally when your tears are passed...and they will pass!

"…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5b


Our tears will not last…we will feel joy again.  Until then, allow yourself the blessing of crying.
