This Tear

This is the tear that formed in my eye the first time I heard the story of Jesus.

This is the tear that blocked my sight when I heard He died for a sinner like me.

This is the tear that ran down my cheek as I went to my knees asking Jesus to forgive me of my sins.

This is the tear that hit the rocks at the bottom of the cross when Jesus called to His Father and said “Elí, Elí, lemá sabachtháni?”

This is the tear of joy as it falls from my chin when I feel His love grow each day in my heart.

And this is the tear that I share with others in hopes they too can shed this tear.
