I Tasted My Tears Today was conceived at a time in my life where I had to taste my own tears because of my own decisions. It was a season where God allowed me to face many challenges, trials, and losses. It was in tasting my tears I discovered a concealed disappointment hidden deep in my heart. I was enlightened to the truth that my disappointment was with God. Had I not tasted the intense saltiness of my tears in that season, I would have missed my door of my healing. I discovered these tears held unhealed and unresolved hurt, pain, disappointment, fear, and all the many questions of why…Had I not faced this truth; disappointment would have continued to sit silently in hopes of transitioning its’ self to anger to bitterness. The ultimate motive was to move me from disappointment to hopelessness and away from God.

I Tasted My Tears Today addresses times in our lives where we had to confront ourselves and tell the truth about why we are where we are and what role we played in getting there. It tells the story of what God allowed that brought tears and questions. We vehemently fought against it because we didn’t understand, trust God or the process but it happened anyway. HE sent it or allowed it and we opposed it. Ultimately, we did the opposite of what HE directed us to do. All the while singing, “I Will Do It My Way.” It also speaks to the time our choice brought us to this place and now the consequences of such we are living with. In each of these, we live in it and through it tasting our tears; tears of disappointment, frustration, doubt, hopelessness, fear, and anger with yourself, others, and maybe even God. Like these brave Authors, allow yourself to taste your tears and watch the healing process begin.
