No Tear Wasted

I love thinking of that moment in heaven when God will tenderly wipe away my tears. 

I'm Joni Eareckson Tada and I love thinking of that moment in heaven when God will tenderly wipe away my tears. And, oh, I have cried some tears! You have, too! Ecclesiastes chapter 3 tells us about those times: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: ... a time to weep and a time to laugh...” I’m constantly reminding myself that days of tears and sorrow have their limit. Heaven is about to burst on the horizon, and your earthly sorrows have profound purpose in eternity. The Bible tells us that He numbers your tears; this means God will atone for every single one of them. And something so grand and glorious about your suffering will be revealed that it will suffice for all your hurt down here on earth. So when times of weeping come your way, prepare yourself with these assurances from God's Word. Because, no tear will be wasted.
