God washes the eyes by tears until they can behold the invisible land where tears shall come no more. –Beecher
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.” John 16:20
Tears of joy and tears of grief come into each of our lives. When a child is born we cry over the joy that this child will bring us. When they get older we weep over the grief they bring by poor choices in their lives. We rejoice with our loved ones with the time we have with them and then, when they go home to be with the Saviour, we weep because of the emptiness we feel with them gone. One thing is for sure though, when we get to Heaven all tears will be wiped away for every reason! We will rejoice with the Lord forever!
Because of His death, burial, and resurrection we have this blessed promise! Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Hey friend, Will you be there to rejoice when this promise becomes reality with me?
