BIAY – Psalm 31 & Matthew 26 – Eyes


Bible in a Year – Psalm 31:9 & Matthew 26 – Eyes

The other thing that I feel stirred me to slow down was Psalm 31:9.  

my eye wastes away from grief,

What a stunning sentence.  Is it that the eye cannot cry any longer?  Is it that it has never been able to cry?  It is something else?  

I am not feeling like that verse personally but I have felt that way in the past and I am walking alongside people who may be feeling that way themselves.  And I get the sense that Jesus was feeling it in Matthew 26 as he prayed in the garden before his betrayal and arrest.  

[Jesus] began to be grieved and agitated. Then he said to them, “I am deeply grieved, even to death; remain here, and stay awake with me.”
