The Land of Tears

So there is a story in the Gospels talks about Jesus going to a town called Nain. As He was approaching the town, He saw a dead body being carried out, ‘the only son of a widowed mother.’ When He saw her, ‘his heart went out to her and He said, “Don’t cry.”


He was affected by her tears.  

That is so powerful!  

There is nothing different now.  

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in his wonderful book, The Little Prince, states: “It is such a secret place, the land of tears.”

I don’t disagree, sometimes it feels as though no one understands our tears, but be assured, Someone Does!

His heart went our to her and He said, “Don’t cry.” 

His heart goes out to us…..

One thought on “The Land of Tears

  1. There are so many who are hurting. My prayer is that they will hear the words of Jesus as he tells them not to cry and that they will feel the touch of Jesus as he comforts them. Blessings Andrea!
