No Tear Wasted

Thank you for those of you who prayed for my friend's son Luke.  His mom reports that he came through the surgery fine, and the tumor does not look ominous.  Your prayers for his continued healing would be greatly appreciated.

I recently read a devotional about trials and suffering and learned that none of our tears are wasted.  God stores them up in our own bottle, He remembers our afflictions.  In Psalm 56:8, David says put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?  Notice he's referring to his own tears into his own bottle.  He makes reference to God recording them.  What a sweet thought, that God is not only aware of our tears; he saves and records them.  God cares about your personally.

Luke's mom Darlene, shared something with me that she had recently read that brought her comfort:  Trust God in every situation. There are eternal reasons for temporary trials.
