Liquid Love

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- July 30, 2012

“Jesus wept.” John 11:35

Tears are evidence of a kind and caring heart. They are the nectar of God that brings sweet support to another suffering soul. Moist eyes make a friend feel understood and accepted. It is this tenderness of spirit that seizes a hurting heart and won’t let go until it lingers long in love. Tears create crevices of comfort where words will never lodge. Indeed, liquid love is possible for anyone whose heart has been touched by the love of Jesus.

When our tear ducts have dried up, our heart may have shriveled up. When we are too strong to cry, we may have become too weak to really care. When the tears of others make us uncomfortable, we may be comfortable in our own self-reliance. However, when we comprehend the compassion of Christ and see His wet eyes of love for us, we weep. He weeps over our loss, He cries for our comfort, and He hurts over our hurt. He weeps for us.

As He [Jesus] approached Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it.” Luke 19:41

Do you by faith drink in the liquid love of the Lord Jesus? Has the compassion of Christ captured your heart so that you now care for others? Yes, this life can be hard, unfair, and careless in its concerns, but you have the privilege to console a community and to love your family. Your passion for people is assurance that Almighty God cares for them in their fears and insecurities. Don’t be afraid to weep for injustice. Cry over sin and ask the Lord to glorify Himself out of your tears.

Your emotions are meant to be moved by the fate of those who, today, risk separation from God tomorrow. Your passionately tearful prayers tear into the enemy’s territory. Imagine holding your child’s hand and silently praying a prayer touched by a tear. Perhaps you ask forgiveness with moist eyes of contrition or embrace a loved one with a comforting caress. Your liquid love speaks volumes when words won’t work.

“When Paul had finished speaking, he knelt down with all of them and prayed. They all wept as they embraced him and kissed him.” Acts 20:36-37

Prayer: Heavenly Father, break my heart for what breaks Yours. Moisten my eyes.

    I’m the owner of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and am aiming to develop my wholesale side of business. I am hoping someone at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most ideal way to do this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anybody could recommend a trustworthy site where I can buy CBD Shops International Sales Leads I am currently looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most suitable option and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
