lessons from mary this easter

John 20
11 Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.
13 They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
15 He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?
Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

 This spoke to right to my heart this easter weekend.  How often am I worried and afraid and  in tears that I don't even see Jesus?  He is right there, willing to give me comfort.  And it isn't till he calls my name that I pay attention.







What spoke to your heart this Easter?

  2. Hi Karrie
    I quite relate to your words. When we are at a bad place, we only need to become quiet and listen. We will hear His still small voice calling your name. Wonderful analogy! Over via Michelle's and I wish you a blessed week, living in His presence.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
