God Understands

 ...All night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears. Psalm 6:6

Have you ever wondered what the Bible says about tears and crying? I started looking up Bible verses using words like tears, cries, weeping... God has seen a lot of sorrow on this planet. I listed some verses for you today. May they help soothe and give you solace. You are loved, and you're not alone. 💗ferree

There is a time for everything,

    and a season for every activity under the heavens:...    a time to weep and a time to laugh,

    a time to mourn and a time to dance, Ecclesiastes 3:1,4

(Even Jesus cried...) During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Hebrews 5:7

We plead with God in our distress…


Hear my prayer, Lord,

    listen to my cry for help;

    do not be deaf to my weeping. Psalm 39:12

Record my misery;

    list my tears on your scroll

    are they not in your record? Psalm 56:8

I cried out to God for help;

    I cried out to God to hear me.

When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;

    at night I stretched out untiring hands,

    and I would not be comforted.  Psalm 77:1,2

My soul is weary with sorrow;

    strengthen me according to your word. Psalm 119:28

God see & hears

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,

    and his ears are attentive to their cry; Psalm 34:15

I waited patiently for the Lord;                                                                                                         

he turned to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1

God Delivers Us

For you, Lord, have delivered me from death,

    my eyes from tears,

    my feet from stumbling, Psalm 116:8

Those who sow with tears

    will reap with songs of joy. Psalm 126:5

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;

    he hears their cry and saves them. Psalm 145:19

He will comfort us 

Blessed are those who mourn,

    for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

Even though I walk

    through the darkest valley,

I will fear no evil,

    for you are with me;

your rod and your staff,

    they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

You turned my wailing into dancing;

    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,  Psalm 30:11

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[b] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Rev. 21:4

  1. So timely. A lady from church has just unexpectedly become a widow, (Mr. had a clean bill of health from the doc), and I'm working on a note to mail to her. I’d love to go visit but she's out of state with family. However, I’ll share some of these verses in my note.

    Must admit that I’m having a hard time with those who are saying, "Well at least "Mr." is in heaven." I remind myself that they aren't widows, therefore they have a different perspective. Yes, it's wonderful that "Mr." was saved and is in heaven, but "Mrs." has a totally broken heart that needs to be comforted.
