go out weeping

“he who goes out weeping, 
carrying seed to sow, 
will return with songs of joy, 
carrying sheaves with him.” 
(Psalm 126:6)

go out weeping
always go out weeping
not cocky and confident
not prideful and arrogant
not critical and judgmental
not certain and sure

go out weak and vulnerable
go out humble and dependent
go out fully aware of your own brokenness

go out with questions rather than answers
go out as nobody rather than as somebody
go out as someone with much to receive
rather than one who has much to offer
go out to love and to serve

for only then will you
return with songs of joy
carrying sheaves with you
