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.” John 20:15
If you aren’t familiar with this story it takes place when Mary was looking for Jesus body at the tomb. She was crying because she thought that he was no longer there and that someone took his body from her. Of course, I can not relate to her story but I would think she felt alone, hurt, and broken.
To be honest, all of us at times may have felt this way. The feeling that no one understands your pain. No one around you can relate to your misfortunes. You’re looking for answers and if there were options you would run to it for understanding or even a glimpse of hope. But when all has failed and life is just too much to bare all we can do is weep. Life has a way of making you vulnerable. But there hope…
Jesus said to her, “Mary” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher”). John 20:16
I could go on and write the other Bible verses but I want to highlight the importance of this one. Jesus was still there and hadn’t left. He saw her weeping and called her by her name. Just like He is still there for us today. He is still the same Lord then as He is now. Right when we feel like all hope is lost and there is nothing left to do. We still have to know that we have a loving Lord. He hasn’t forsaken, left or forgot about you. And if you would just look for Him, He will be there.
Therefore there is no need for tears of abandonment, hopelessness, or fear. For He is with you more today than yesterday. He knows you by your name and knows the struggles that have been upon you. For you are not alone. May you accept Him into your heart for healing, consoling, reconstruction.
I pray that these words find you where ever you are….<3
