My women’s discipleship group is currently reading Crowned with Love and Mercy: Finding Your Worth and Identity in Jesus Christ. I will have to write a review when we are done, but it is wonderful so far. Just chock-full of Biblical encouragement. Anyway, last night I was taken aback by this statement that I read in the book: “He is there to put every tear into His bottle,” and there was a Bible reference. A very poetic reminder that God knows everything that we are going through. But was the word “bottle” actually in the Bible, I wondered, as in a bottle of tears? Or was it just a very generous paraphrase? I know I haven’t read the whole Bible (not even close), it just sounded very unfamiliar. But sure enough, it’s right there in Psalm 56:8.
Don’t you love finding “new” verses in the Bible??
