Spiritual Weeping vs. Emotional Crying — 2 Comments

  1. I was touched to read your message because of something that happened to me just yesterday.  I was in prayer and a deep sobbing came on me.  I was not crying about any need of my own, but sensed the cry was the ache of God’s heart for His people.  The sobs were loud and intense.  Suddenly I was reminded that there were men doing construction on my building and when I checked I saw a man just outside my open window.  I was deeply embarrassed and wanted to cover it up and make excuses.  But the Holy Spirit convicted me saying, “Never hide My tears from anyone”.  I saw that God moves and works in power through the intercession of the Holy Spirit in us and He can use it to touch anyone’s heart.  I thank Him for that lesson and have confessed to Him the sin of my own pride.

  2. Jim,
    This spoke to my heart.  I had an abortion when I was 16.  I trusted in my parents guiding and that was their decision.  I have now learned through the Lord that it was actually an evil spirit that entered them causing this to take place.  I have asked for forgiveness from God and given it to my parents as well.  I have never become pregnant since.  I have been wrestling with God about this for a while.  He quoted this scripture a few years ago and I still have a hard time with it.  I know that even though he is withholding the blessing of children, that He is a loving, compassionate God.  I know that the loss and hurt I feel not having children would be worse than having them before evil is rampant on earth.  It is only by the grace of God that I am able to stand and fight.  I pray that I will continue to finish the race like Jesus would.

    Laus Deo,
    Linda
