Predestination

Part of Predestination

Why do many of us begin our lives at a young age sowing tears? Is it better? What does it mean to those who sow tears at the end or advanced age?

This very thought speaks about how we should remember to look ahead of our struggles, challenges, and sins and that the tears we shed at a young age will be like watering the seeds planted in a field of bad dreams that, in due time, throughout the years those that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Too much toil and suffering are too hot to handle, pointing fingers to blame instead of searching for help from the one who knits our innermost parts together.

It is better to start our lives with much pain than to have a better life, then rot and wither in later years of our lives, and then say goodbye to the world with tears and regrets. And those who suffer and remain faithful and acknowledge the sovereignty and control of God will be uplifted and rise to a great harvest of joy and thankfulness. Those that sow in tears shall reap in joy. – Psalm 126:5

In Jeremiah 1:5, God says, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I sanctified you; and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
