Apparently when you laugh the world laughs with you, but when you cry, you cry alone. So much pain and pent up frustration, so much injustice and cruelty, so much inner turmoil and outer grief that we are not meant to keep it bottled in but we have an opportunity to cry out. Our cries do not go unheard. It is good to cry out from time to time, because through these cries answers can come forward – hearts can be troubled, consciences made alive, actions can follow, relief and release can come even from the most unexpected sources.
This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. (Psalm 34:6)
