10 Truths About CryingPsalm 30:5
For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for a lifetime;
Weeping may last for the night,
But a shout of joy comes in the morning.
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
And His ears are open to their cry.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
I waited patiently for the Lord;
And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
He was despised and forsaken of men,
A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
II Corinthians 4:17
For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,
and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.
