God weeps?

I’ve been reading Jeremiah – the so called, “the weeping prophet”- yet have learned from various commentaries that it is ambiguous at best regarding who exactly is weeping!

What if it’s not the prophet Jeremiah, but God who does this crying:like a high-pitched flute of Moab” Jeremiah 48:36. The sorrow overwhelming, as sins of various nations grew and their refusal to repent happened again and again. What a thought.

I’m in Spain today, walking among so many nations and I can not get these words out of my mind. So many languages, cultures, traditions… all differ from mine, religious beliefs and moral beliefs. My heart aches for anyone who does not know the Way, the Truth and the Life.

I find myself praying constantly for all the souls we walk passed. God knows each name… every birthdate… every death-date… and every moment between. Nothing passes His notice.

“For the eyes of the LORD roam to and fro over all the earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are fully devoted to Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9

Every soul matters to God! Every soul has a purpose in Him. Every soul is loved, cherished and was purchased with an extraordinary price. I can only imagine that God weeps when His creation does not recognize Him and refuses to come to Him.

“For by Messiah all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him.” Colossians‬ ‭1:16‬

What an awesome scene… to ponder the music of His tears. 


Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth, for I Am God and there is no other.” Isaiah 45:22
