When we’re down, many times it’s hard to do what we’re supposed to do. Doing chores, going to work, spending quality time with others is hard when you’re sorrowful.
But look at what God calls us to do with our tears: Psalm 126:5-6
Those who sow in tears
will reap with songs of joy. 6 He who goes out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him.
That “sowing with tears” will produce a harvest of joy. Perseverance creates a better end product because the sorrow itself becomes fertile ground for change.
