What was sown a tear will come up a pearl...

Those who know me know I love pearls so I loved this word picture....thought it was beautiful.

Strands of pearls

"...put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?"
(Psalm 56:9)

"As the blood of his saints, and their deaths, are precious in the sight of the Lord, so are their tears, not one of them shall fall to the ground. 
I have seen thy tears....
He will remember them......God will not forget the sorrows of his people.
The tears of God's people are bottled up and sealed among God's treasures....
God will comfort his people according to the time wherein he has afflicted them, 
and give to those to reap in joy who sowed in tears. 
What was sown a tear will come up a pearl."
Matthew Henry

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
