Psalm 56:8 "Bottle of Tears" Print

from 7.00

This verse is such a special promise to God's children. Margaret Nyman describes the miraculousness of this verse best: 

A bottle full of tears is a potent image of several things: God’s nearness to anyone who’s upset to the point of tears, and his mysterious ability that can somehow collect literal tears...If it is a literal statement, what might that bottle look like? Because the scriptural word for it is singular, it would have to be one giant bottle! What could God possibly want with those tears? They’re salty, as all of us can testify, having caught them with our tongues as they’ve run past our mouths. They are also clear. According to Revelation (22:1), heaven will have a “river of life” running from the throne of God, “as clear as crystal.” Is it possible God plans to use our tears to create this supernatural river? Could it be a “salt water river?” Just when we become completely speechless over such a possibility, we get another inexplicable fact from the same verse. It says God records each tear in a book. Such detailed record-keeping is imponderable, but we’ve always known the Lord was good with detail. He keeps track of all our sorrows (same verse) and cares deeply about our suffering.

I pray this image Margaret has painted with her words touches you as deeply as it touched me, and I pray that when you hang this print that I designed up in your home, it reminds you of this beautiful promise!

If you would like a different color or size than what I have listed, please contact me!

Each print is printed on bright white 80# linen card stock and comes enclosed in a protective sleeve with a piece of reinforcing cardboard and is packaged in a padded waterproof envelope.
