Real Men Do Cry

[Jhn 11:35 KJV] 35 Jesus wept.

[Mat 26:75 KJV] 75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

[Psa 142:1-7 KJV] 1 [[Maschil of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave.]] I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication. 2 I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble. 3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me. 4 I looked on [my] right hand, and beheld, but [there was] no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul. 5 I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou [art] my refuge [and] my portion in the land of the living. 6 Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I. 7 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.

[2Co 2:4 KJV] 4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.

[Psa 116:8 KJV] 8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, [and] my feet from falling.

“Tears are God’s gift to us. Our holy water. They heal us as they flow.” (Rita Schiano)

[Ecc 7:3 KJV] 3 Sorrow [is] better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

[Ecc 3:4 KJV] 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

[Luk 7:37-38 KJV] 37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that [Jesus] sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, 38 And stood at his feet behind [him] weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe [them] with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed [them] with the ointment.
