“You’ve kept track of my every toss and turn through sleepless nights, each tear entered in your ledger, each ache written in your book.” (Psalm 56:8, The Message)
As I sort through the children’s laundry I talk to God about them; I can’t allow time to pass through my hands without speaking hope into their future. Life is fragile to young souls and the world is full of hurtful moments and broken expectations.
I reach for another shirt to fold and it hits me… Every Drop Counts; every tear that falls from their innocent eyes matters to our maker. He counts them, carefully collects them and remembers each one as He places them in His care.
I must tell them! I must show them! I must lead them to Him! When the light fades to dark and all they hold near slips away; they must KNOW that EVERY DROP COUNTS with God!
Every hurt can be restored! Every cloud can produce a rainbow! Every tear can supply joy!
We can’t take away the pain that drives the tears BUT we can lead them to the one who makes it count!
Oh Father, you collect our tears and make every drop count; help us, MAKE IT COUNT!
