This picture was inspired by Psalm 126.
It gives me a redemptive perspective of tears, pain, and heartache.
It makes me think that tears are seeds and they are never wasted. Though they may have come from dry and shrivelled places, they are seeds of joy and beauty.
In places of emptiness and loss, anguish and confusion, chaos and destruction, tears are a sign of future harvest. They are a sign of life. Abundant, flourishing, and overflowing life.
And where there was mourning, there will be songs of joy. For God has done great things for you, and all will know it because they can hear your songs.
