Tears have a wisdom all their own. They come when a person has relaxed enough to let go & work through his sorrow. They are the natural bleeding of an emotional wound, carrying the poison out of the system. Here lies the road to recovery - F. Alexander Magoun
Scripture This scripture depicts the Holy Spirit as rain that cleanses us. I think the picture of the woman in the rain is a good way to illustrate this verse because it looks like she is opening herself to the rain and therefor being open to God and the Holy Spirit. It also brings a connection between baptism (water) and confirmation which completes baptism.
JESUS CAME TO GIVE US ABUNDANT LIFE (John 10:10) BUT WE MUST DO IT HIS WAY: "We cannot talk to God strongly when we have not lived for God strongly. The closet cannot be made holy to God when the life has not been holy to God." ~ E.M. Bounds
