He collects my tears.

Thanks to all of you who responded to my post yesterday. Jonathan's medicine showed up late yesterday and he was able to start it on time. I cried all my tears and now I am better until my next break down. :). My sweet husband didn't know what to do with me the other day. He encouraged me and loved me and said, "This is not a big deal.." I told him that once I start crying I have to get all the tears out before I can stop. It may take minutes, it may take hours, it may take a day or two. Thankfully, It only lasted a few hours. A hot bath, warm bed and prayer can fix anything!

Two different people sent me this verse and I love the idea of Jesus collecting my tears.

You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.- Psalm 58:6.

Another verse that gets me through suffering is-

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.- 1 Peter 5:10

I have to remember that through the suffering God is refining me to be more like him and to that I say Refine away. My hope is for him to whittle me away until all you can see is him. I may have to suffer here on earth but my eyes are on heaven. 

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
