Jesus keeps track of all my sorrows

Psalm 56:8   You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.

A friend of mine recently watched her mother pass into the arms of Jesus.  As she was stroking her mother’s hair, she spoke words of love, memories, and comfort. Stop and imagine that sweet time.  The older I become, the more stories I hear of being right there when loved ones are breathing their last earthly breath.  Some of us know the pain of getting the dreaded phone call and not being able to say goodbye this side of heaven, and words unspoken.  God cares about each sorrowful moment, thought, and collects all your tears.  I’ve never really pondered God as a journalist – recording my journey, our walk together.  Oh how sweet He is to take the time and keep track of me, collect my tears, and write my life story.  In our grief, may we treasure each tear knowing He is holding us as we cry each one.  Thank you Jesus.  Thank you for loving us so much.

    Lord cause our feet to stumble, but pick us up when we fall. He knows when we’ve fallen, and smiles as He recalls all the times He has picked us up. He had to cause our feet to stumble because we were heading the wrong way. We will have some scars when we reach the end of our journey, but once again we will be embraced by the One who endured many scars for our salvation.

    Can you tell me whose painting this is? It is such a good depiction on Christ with us!



      I believe the work may have come from David Bowman. It seems similar to his paintings. Another place to find Christian art:

      Jean Keaton is a great artist, too!
