Memory Monday – Week 75

I’m tired and I’m weary. I miss my nephew. I want to be pregnant. Yesterday, while the tears streamed down my face at church, a friend whispered this verse, Psalm 56:8, to me. God knows all of our sorrows and He knows all of our tears.

Isn’t it amazing that not only does God know all the hairs on our head, but He keeps track of every sorrow and tear as well? ‘Why don’t you care?’ seems like such an easy question to ask Him, when the truth is that He does care. He does know. He knows every trial you are in. He knows every problem you are facing. He knows every tear you cry. He knows every heartache you have. He knows your pain.

If you are feeling like no one cares, including Jesus, I want to encourage you today that He does. Just like in Psalm 56 where God did not ignore David’s emotions, He isn’t ignoring yours either. He has deep concern for those who suffer, so much so that He catches every tear and He is with you during your sleepless nights. His ways are so hard to understand sometimes. There is purpose in all of them. He sees what you are going through and in due time His perfect plan, timing, and victory will be revealed.

    That is always such a comforting thought to me to know he cares that much to know every tear I shed…

    Oh Caroline…my heart aches with you. I understand the pain of loss and feeling like a calling is unfulfilled, but I know more importantly that Jesus gets it. I’m praying…and believing for great things. More than you can imagine, guess or request. 🙂

    What a verse! I’m with you, this weekend. Yesterday I just sat on Zeke’s lap and let myself cry and spill out all of those heartsick feelings. And to think that our God knows each of those tears! You’re not alone in this, friend.

    Just the verse I needed to hear. I spent the day yesterday being uber busy because I simply didn’t want to allow myself time to think about everything I was feeling – which was simply missing everyone. Thinking of you and your family. Hugs and love! XO

    Sorry to hear you are feeling down. It’s a tough time of year to deal with loss and infertility. Take care of yourself! Glad to hear that your friend knew the right thing to say at that moment. 🙂

    I wish I were there to hand you a tissue and wipe a tear from your eye. You are certainly allowed to feel tired, especially with how much energy you put into celebrating others and staying positive. I hate hearing that you are tired and sad at times, but I know that those moments are not what make you who who are, and that you will find strength through your faith and marriage. I love you girl. SO SO MUCH!
