When you live in the world we live in, when you see and hear everything you experience, when you know the good and the bad and everything in between, what are you to do? Laugh or cry?
It seems contradictory, but you can do both. God wants you to do both.
It’s okay to hurt when it’s painful and shed tears over the sorrow. He sits with you in the darkness and walks gently with you. He knows sometimes you just need tears.
It’s also okay to laugh. God sends good things into your life to bring joy. He loves to see things make your face light up with a smile. He is thrilled to one day fill you with eternal pleasures in his presence forever.
The Father in heaven is the God of our tears and our laughter. See him present in both.
“There is . . . a time to weep and a time to laugh” (Ecclesiastes 3:1,4).
We'd love to hear from you.
