One of my favourite parts of the Easter Sunday account is of when Mary Magdalene had gone to the tomb – saw that the stone had been removed – and when the disciples discovered that Jesus was no longer there she stayed at the tomb weeping – heart broken and sad – wanting to know where someone had taken His body.
She looked in the tomb and saw two angels – then turning round she saw Jesus – who she did not recognise and asked Him if He knew what had happened.
This next bit is the part that I love – for Jesus simply calls her by name- and suddenly she recognises Who He is – He is right there if front of her – waiting for her to recognise Him – to see and understand that she is not forsaken – He is there for her – as He had always been.
I love the fact that the same is true for me today that when I look for Him – He calls my name – He lets me know He is there for me – as He always has been.
I may be heart broken – sad – struggling to come to terms with things that have happened in my life – but – if I look for Him – not only will I find Him – but He will – not just know my name – He will call my name. I pray that as you seek Him – you will recognise Him – as He calls your name.
Blessings and love this Easter time – Lois
