Why do women cry at even the slightest thing? I guess that is one question men always ask and never seem to get the answer. A woman cries when she is happy and also when she is sad; it is just the way we were created. We are emotional beings; it does not make us inferior rather it is a reflection of how compassionate we are.
1 Samuel 1 vs. 10 “And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore”, that verse talks about Hannah when she was praying to God for the fruit of the womb at Shiloh. I believe it is okay to cry in God’s presence after all most of us literally cry in the arms of our lover how much more in the arms of our first love. He sees every tear; he understands what your tears are trying to say even when you don’t utter a word. It does not mean that she did not believe God, she just had to let go of all the pain in her heart.
Everyone is carrying one weight, but no matter how heavy that weight might be we should not allow a bitter situation turn you into a bitter person. Sometimes you get lost, but the most important thing is to try to find yourself. Trials come to bring out the strength in you. People say Dr Stellz you appear fragile but right inside is a very strong woman. I have come to realise that I draw strength from knowing that God loves me no matter what. Sometimes when God does not calm a storm, he calms his child instead.
There are times when words are not enough to express the way you feel, at times like this I could actually just wrap myself in the arms of God and let it all out. Being a Woman is a privilege; I still believe that women are one of the strongest creatures made by God. Woman literally go through so much pain, both physiologically (Menstrual pain) and emotionally but we always still find the strength to smile and say I am fine even when we do not feel like it.
I am a strong woman because I have learnt to smile in the midst of my tears. I would not say it is one of the easiest things to do, but knowing that his arms are always open and his shoulders are always there gives me so much courage. It is okay to cry in God’s presence, not a “Why me?” type of cry, rather a “Give me the strength to go through this” type. Somehow in the midst of all the pain, stress, confusion, I still found the strength to put down this note. Though weeping may last for the night, but surely Joy is just around the corner!
