Crying is like the release valve of life; letting go of the emotional stress and tension we might feel. Everyone will feel the urge to cry at some point. Any opportunity to let go of stress and anxiety is a good thing.
When you cry endorphins are released including oxytocin which is known to have a calming effect and helps to create a feeling of well being. You body also purges toxins that are built up in the body.
Psalm 56:8-9 says, ‘You have recorded my troubles. You have kept a list of my tears. Aren’t they in your records? On the day I call for help, my enemies will be defeated. I know that God is on my side.’ (NCV) It’s wonderful to know that while we release our distress through crying, God is so concerned, He keeps track of our tears. Never feel embarrassed about crying!
He loves you so much, He keeps a list of your tears.
Thank You Lord that You are concerned about me, even when I cry, I cry out to You. Amen.
Type into a search engine, ‘what happens to your body when you cry,’ you’ll be amazed.
