With time, tears always pass. They turn into either hope or depression. If the tears are focused on today's negatives, the tears would become depression. If, instead, we focus on future glory, God would transform tears into hope and blessing. God blesses us with hope that could see farther through our tears.

Faith looks beyond tears. Faith looks toward future promise. "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain" (Rev. 21: 4).
