Going through rivers of difficulty will either cause you to drown or force you to grow stronger. Some people consider expressing emotions to be a sign of weakness, but failure to express these emotions result in tension being stored within our bodies. We need a relief valve for the heart and one of the purest suppressants is tears.
Rarely do we hear someone say they are more stressed or upset after crying. Emotional tears are a response which only humans have and these tears are a part of the miracle of the human body that we often take for granted. Crying provides a healthy release when done in moderation and helps us recover and go on with life.
There is a connection between the tears we shed and the priorities in our lives. When our souls cry out to the heart of the Creator, we are sending up silent prayers to bring balance into our lives and provide strength for the journey ahead. It is through these heartfelt tears that our pleas are answered.
