So have a good cry, wash out your heart
If you keep it inside it'll tear you apart
~ Dr. Hook, “Better Love Next Time”
Are you harming yourself by what you hold inside?

I truly believe many people are not at the place of spiritual, emotional or mental health that God has for them because they do not regularly release their emotions.
God isn’t afraid of our tears. Psalm 56:8 says: “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.”
Jesus wept (John 11:35) and the Bible gives instruction that those who sow in tears will reap in joy. (Psalm 126:5)
Apparently, to reap in joy -- tears are required at times.
Some questions to think about…
Why do we often try to suppress our tears?
What is there to be gained by holding our tears inside?
When’s the last time you’ve let the tears flow and didn’t try to hold them back?
Sometimes the most spiritual thing you can do is have a good cry.
I love you, ladies...
