Seeing through tears

"Sometimes we can see more through our tears than we can through a telescope." - Michael Catt

I came across this quote in a book by Michael Catt and I find it intriguing. Often we think that our tears blind us and prevent us from seeing anything. Catt adds a new dimension onto this by suggesting that our tears allow us to see Jesus more clearly. It is in the midst of our suffering that we open our hearts to the healing power of Jesus.

Richard Baxter - "Suffering unbolts the door of the heart so that the Word hath easier entrance."

May we see Jesus, even in the midst of our difficulties.

Living in Grace
