Rachel's Tears - Rachel's Joy

Rachel's Tears
Jeremiah 31:15
Thus says the LORD:
“ A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation and bitter weeping,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted for her children,
Because they are no more.”

"Just looking at my heart crying about the pain." ~Rachel Joy Scott

Jeremiah 9:1
Oh, that my head were waters, And my eyes a fountain of tears, That I might weep day and night For the slain of the daughter of my people!

"Please find me a lake, so I may drown in my waters of sorrow." ~ Rachel Joy Scott

Rachel's Joy

Psalm 126:5
Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.

"I am not going to hide the light that God has put into me." ~ Rachel Joy Scott

Isaiah 25:8
He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken.

"Create in me the church, so that wherever I go I will find sanctuary."  ~ Rachel Joy Scott

John 16:20
Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.

I lost all my friends at school. Now that I have begun to walk my talk, they make fun of me. I don't even know what I have done. I don't really have to say anything, and they turn me away.
~ Rachel Joy Scott

Luke 6:21
Blessed are you who weep now, For you shall laugh.

"I have a purpose,
I have a dream,
I have a future,
so it seems."
~ Rachel Joy Scott

Rachel along with her sister Leah, was a matriarch of the 13 tribes of Israel. Rachel died in child birth while bearing her second son Benjamin. Rachel's lamentation for her children, children of Israel, has been heard down through the ages.  Her 13 tears will forever be remembered.
Beloved, like Rachel, through the sorrow, you shall reap joy, and you shall laugh.


On April 20, 1999 Rachel Joy Scott lost her life along with 12 others, in the Columbine shooting. This post is dedicated to the memory of  Rachel Joy Scott and the 13 tears she shed for Columbine, as recorded in her journal.

Jesus come into my life,

Lord come into my heart.
   cause you are the one,
Who will fill the void inside,
   You are the One,
Who will give eternal life,
   You are the One,
Who will give undying love,
   You are the One,
Who is in heaven above.
~ Rachel Joy Scott
