Every Tear

There was a time I sought healing,
   for my broken heart;
      to find release from painful feelings
         that tear my life apart.
And there's much sorrow in my life
   from sins, especially mine.
They cut my soul as with a knife
   from people, misled and blind.

Then I read of His promise,
   found at the end of His Book.
Unbelieving (I'm being honest)
   but it made me take a look.
It was enough to love this God
   because He first loved me.
But there's more reason to give Him laud;
   in this promise you will see.

For all the sorrow faced in life,
   every realized fear,
      He had promised to make it right
         and wipe away each tear.
I saw that meant we'd still have pain
   until He kept that promise;
Though we're called by His name
   sorrow still would follow us.

I then saw that in seeking my healing
   I became my god.
In being led by my hurt feelings
   the will I followed was self-shod.
If I was to trust His future promise
   He was to lead instead of my pain.
I saw the sorrow that followed us
   only led us to His Name.

He desires we'd keep the pain
   until He keeps His promise.
The road ending in His name
   is marked by the sorrow following us.
Instead of seeking for my healing
   I choose to seek the Lord.
When tempted to run and hide from feeling,
   I hide in His Word.

So now I leave all my fears
   in the hands of the Lord.
I reserve all my tears
   for the promise in His Word.
Soon will come that glorious Day
   when there's no reason to fear. 
We will have all we prayed
   when He wipes every tear.

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4
