“Mary was standing outside the tomb crying, and as she wept, she stooped and looked in.
She saw two white-robed angels sitting at the head and foot of the place where the body of Jesus had been lying.
“Why are you crying?” the angels asked her.
Because they have taken away my Lord,” she replied, “and I don’t know where they have put him.”
She glanced over her shoulder and saw someone standing behind her. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him.
“Why are you crying?” Jesus asked her. “Who are you looking for?”
She thought he was the gardener.
“Sir,” she said, “If you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and get him.”
“Mary!” Jesus said.
She turned toward him and exclaimed, “Teacher!”
How perfect is His love….
He is near… especially in our sorrow.
Mary… Oh, how she wanted Jesus… She wanted to see him, touch, him… She wanted His precious body to be safe in her arms…
She so loved and cherished Him…
Her heart was broken into a million pieces, and there He was!
In the midst of her deepest sorrow…
There He was!
She sought Him…
And He was there.
How I pray our hearts to surrender…
That we would search for Him. Let Him in, and let Him be close…
Dear Heavenly Father, How I thank You for such love. For Your amazing gentleness and calmness in the midst of our storms. May we seek You, and let You be our heart’s desire.
How I pray we would hear Your tender voice call our name…
That we would be still and Know that You are God.
In Jesus Name,
Live in Love,
“You are my refuge and my shield; Your word is my only source of hope..”
“Be still and know that I am God”
Walk in peace today.. remembering He is near :)
