Never think that your tears are unimportant to God.  They are exceedingly important to Him.

In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.’”  Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the Lord, and said, “Remember now, O Lord, I pray, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart, and have done what is good in Your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.  And the word of the Lord came to Isaiah, saying, “Go and tell Hezekiah, ‘Thus says the Lord, the God of David your father: “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will add to your days fifteen years. I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria, and I will defend this city.”  (Isa 38:1-6, emphasis added)

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.  (Rev 22:4)  Just as human parents do not like to see their crying and in pain, even so, our heavenly Father loves to dry our eyes and to remove pain from our lives and our bodies.

For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.  (2 Cor 7:10)  Godly sorrow and tears, called repentance, are not to be regretted for they produce the fruit of righteousness.  But worldly sorrow, doesn’t work that way.  Repentant tears are seen and valued highly by the Lord.

He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; the rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For the Lord has spoken.  (Isa 25:8)  This is a prophetic Scripture concerning the work of Christ and the future–when the fullness of God’s plan will be seen and manifested in heaven, and He will wipe away our every tear.

In the meantime, understand that God sees our tears and he collects them in a bottle.  (Ps 56:8)  He is aware of our sorrows and pains.

Jesus Christ has fulfilled His work by coming to earth; living a sinless life; suffering and dying; and being resurrected from the grave by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Glory to God!

One day, in heaven, the Lord wipe away tears from all faces, and we will serve Him and praise Him for all eternity.  What joy!
