Tears and Turmoil

Tears are liquid words Psalm 38:9 TPT
God holds our tears as very precious, He takes notice of them and understands them, even as Jesus was a “man of sorrows and acquainted with grief”, so our heavenly father also empathises with us in our sorrows.
Psalm 56:8
“You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book?”
Indeed, doctors have found that tears of grief have opioids in them, so when we say “I had a good cry and felt better”, there is a valid scientific reason for this.
[Is crying good for you? – Harvard Health]
Of course, crying can also release our negative emotions too, like sadness, and anger too. When we bottle up, or keep inside us, these emotions, they can become like a cancer to our souls. They start eating away at us. and drawing our spiritual mental and physical strength from us.
So when Jesus says “Come to me you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest”, [ Matthew 11:28], He is not only offering us rest, but peace and joy, in fact HIS peace and joy, divine, supernatural and permanent peace and joy as we abide in Him and the rest that He gives us.
In this time of deep uncertainty and fear, this time of unprecedented unrest and change, we should seek divine peace and rest as our only answer.
Jesus within us, holds our hearts and hands, and is saying, “come, come, come to me”.
It is only from this place we can stand under the warfare of this season, after having put on our spiritual armour, then having done all we should stand. We should not retreat, but stand until we are able to proceed forward to pull down and break down the kingdom of darkness.
We are the occupation army, we are occupying until He returns, there will be sadness, anger and fear that will come against us as we occupy, we will cry and laugh and these expressions of our emotions are a blessing to us, Jesus himself wept and laughed, so allow yourself to feel and process grief and other emotions, this will give you strength to stand. Look at Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, keep your eyes from the turmoil, look only to HIM.
