There is a time for tears …

“There is a time for tears:
over sin and its resulting human misery (Matthew 5:4),
in the burden of ministering to others (Acts 20:31),
in compassion over the plights of others (Nehemiah 1:4; Romans 12:15), and so on . . .
In our living, we need to feel the full stretch of human emotions. When you need to cry — whether you’re a man or a woman — let the tears flow and don’t be ashamed.”

-from p.39 of “Fix Your Eyes On Jesus” by Anne Ortlund.
