Why Do We Weep?

Why Do We Weep?

Frustration when we canít accomplish Ė
The way is barred and we donít like it Ė
Does God have a better way?

Why Do We Weep?
Is it fear of what may come along?
Is it fear of unmet desires?
Is it fear weíll bother other people?

Why Do We Weep?
Is it intercession for a loved one?
Is it asking for Godís good mercy?
Is it thanksgiving for past blessings?

Why Do We Weep?
Is it just emotion for the moment?
Is it a sincere expression of praise?
God knows the heart & understands.

Why Do We Weep?
Some things canít be expressed with words.
God always understands the tears.
He collects them in a bottle.

Why Do We Weep?
Do we mourn over our sinfulness?
His Word says weíll be comforted
When we repent and truly believe.†
