You want to weep at what has taken place, but you can’t – not
yet. You have been called to protect those you love and your early weeping will
hinder your ability to protect yourself and those you love. You cannot let your
tears blur your vision right now. You
need to see the approaching challenge with clarity. There will be time for tears when this threat
God has called you to be a warrior. The tears of a warrior come after the battle
is fought when the adrenal fluids have settled down and the sword has been laid
aside. Do not succumb to an early sorrow. There is still a remaining battle to
fight. Refuse to sit at the edge of this
battlefield and allow the fear of loss to control you any longer.
Rise up and swing the truth with all your might, slashing
only the lie and not the person. Once
the cut has been made then can you rest. Then you can invite the tears to come. Their salty trail will cleanse your soul because your weeping will be done
in a place of peace.
