When I was a little girl, we were told that rain was the result of the angels crying. This idea always made me sad because I thought heaven was supposed to be a place where everyone was carefree and happy all the time.
In my innocent mind, the angels just had to be carefree.
As I got older, I started to believe that those angel tears had to be caused by more than sadness.
Those drops fall because the angels feel compassion or understanding for the earth below and know that the world needs to be refreshed or washed of the sorrows mankind has brought on itself.
Angel tears are sent to free us from our cares. They are to remind us that Heaven knows what is going on in our lives and that our hurt and sins can be washed away. Our souls can soak up all we need to live and love.
Even when it is hot and dry outside, we can be reassured that the rains will fall again someday giving nature a drink. As the rivers flow and the plants grow, we can be consoled in the fact that the angels want to carry away our concerns with the free-flow of their tears. Those angelic drops are intended to keep us alive in so many ways. That is why the angels let loose sometimes.
Be grateful for the carefree intents of those in heaven. If you find yourself in the midst of your own tear storm, let yourself go and wash away the emotions that are clouding your heart and mind. Set those cares and worries free and find clear and positive intent in your energy and purpose.
Revelation 21:4-5 He will wipe every tear from their eyes.There won’t be any more death. There won’t be any grief, crying, or pain, because the first things have disappeared.” The one sitting on the throne said, “I am making everything new.” He said, “Write this: ‘These words are faithful and true.’”
