My Silent Tears was written because of the hurt the author carried inside, thinking that she was all alone. She knew God and heard what others were saying about Him, but, at that time in her life, she didn’t have a relationship with Him.
One evening in her bedroom, she fell to her knees and cried out to God because the hurt was too much to carry anymore. She spoke His words to Him, “I said you told me I could cast all of my cares upon you for you careth for me. Help me, Lord with this hurt.” She felt a presence like she never had felt before. God promised her that day that He would never leave her or forsake her and He has kept His promise. He has turned My Silent Tears into laughter; He has given the author beauty for her ashes. To God Be The Glory.
