“God will wipe away every tear from their eyes…There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”  Revelation 21:4. Our tears often blur our sight and prevent us from seeing clearly. In those moments, it can be an encouragement to have a friend who cares enough to love us in our pain and walk with us in our struggles.  Even though friends can be a help, only Christ can reach beyond our tears and touch the deep hurts of our heart.  His comfort can carry us through the struggles of our lives until that day when God Himself wipes away every tear from our eyes.  The God who washed away our sins will also wipe away our tears.
