LAST weekend there were tears of joy seen on television on two different occasions.
The first was on Strictly Come Dancing when Will Bayley, a Para Olympian Table Tennis player, and his partner had the audience and judges in tears following their dance, which echoed Will’s struggle through life with his disability.
The second was Sir Andy Murray in floods of tears following his first tennis title win after his major hip surgery.
In our lives there will have been many times when we have shed tears of sorrow or happiness.
We cannot get away from it but in this life there will always be tears of either joy or sadness, which we will experience.
The Bible talks a lot about weeping and crying and in fact the shortest verse says just simply two words, “Jesus wept”.
In the gospels we read so often of Jesus Christ comforting those who were mourning or sad and bringing a blessing to them.
God knows what each of us is going through at this moment in time and He longs for the love, joy and peace that He gives through His Son Jesus to be ours.
In the last book of the Bible we read on more than one occasion where, “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes”.
