THE SHORTEST VERSE IN THE BIBLE IS FOUND IN JOHN 11:35— “JESUS WEPT.”
It is also, to me, one of the most mind blowing verses in the Bible.Think about it. Jesus weeping, not just crying! Isn’t Jesus supposed to be strong and powerful?  The background of this is that Jesus has just returned to the village of Bethany. His friend, Lazarus, has just died four days earlier and there was intense mourning by his burial place within the tomb he was in. Jesus stood and He heard the people cries of pain and loss, He saw the tears falling from their eyes. Jesus felt the pain around Him, and He wept….
I think this relates so society so much today. I feel like we  are taught not to show our true feelings— just push them aside. Especially boys. There is also a crazy, insane thought going around that it is not ok to cry!? What! Some people have said that is not ok to cry because it is showing God doubt that we don’t trust Him. But look! Jesus Wept. If He needs to cry, maybe you and i need a good cry too!
God bless:)

My name is Brittney Borowski. I am really insecure about my body and I often have to remind myself that I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) and that I am all together beautiful, there is no flaw in me (Song of Solomon 4:7). This doesn’t just go for me, it is for every single one of you. You are handcrafted by the KING of kings. You are His masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10). Not a sketch or a doodle. But a masterpiece. 
I am beautiful, and so are you.
