Where tears can’t stop….

There is a place in God’s heart

where tears can’t stop.

Tears for the broken,

the weary,

the empty,

the destitute,

the abused,

the forgotten.

Tears of passion,

of compassion


to us

if we will

receive them

as streams of living water,

flowing in

compelling us to act,

to care,

to open our dry eyes that 

we might see

in a new way.

PS 56:8You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your record?
