Why am I crying NOW?
Have you ever been so caught up in the moment of what you are doing that all your emotion, passion, and soul feel like one and you begin to tear up? That moment. That piece of time. That emotion. Priceless.
You aren’t quite sure where that tear came from, but there is no denying that something is stirring within your soul.
Always listen to that full watery tear because it says so much.
It says . . . this is a moment I’ll never forget.
It says . . . there is something to this that resonates with my soul.
It says . . . this thing I’m doing touches the very core of my heart.
It says . . . this is where I want to be.
It says . . . this is what I’m called to do.
It says . . . THIS is my purpose.
My pastor has a saying “What ever makes you cry your eyes out or bang your fists on the table, that thing, that is what you are called to do.”
What makes you tear up? Do you know why?
Is it some injustice being done? Is it the sadness you feel someone experiencing? Is it children playing? Is it the elderly? Is it the pain strippers experience in clubs?
Recently I was reminded of the power of a tear as I sat visiting with my daughter. She was talking about where God was leading her and what she felt He was calling her to do. I saw it gently forming there in her eye. The water that began to pool and then slowly slip down her cheek. I knew instantly that burden of a tear. It was there. She couldn’t deny it.
I traveled to Jamaica this past week. It is a beautiful country and I was there on vacay! But before I knew it, there was that tear. Driving through the villages and ghetto’s my eyes filled with that watery substance of a burden. My heart began to pound as the call to serve the less fortunate was beating loudly within my soul.
Chatting at the Sky has an awesome post about how our tears can be messengers. I love that thought because it is so true. Her post is totally worth the read. Touched my heart and stirred many emotions within me.
I’d love to hear what makes tears form in your eyes. What are these messengers telling you?
