THE SEARCH

She turned to leave and saw someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him. “Dear woman, 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 to him and cried out, “Rabboni!” (which is Hebrew for “Teacher”). “Don’t cling to me,” Jesus said, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father. But go find my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, “I have seen the Lord!” Then she gave them his message.”
‭John 20:14-18 NLT‬
Have you found yourself searching, for peace, security, hope, love? What if you could stop searching? What if the thing you are so desperately longing for, is infinitely closer than you could ever imagine? What if it is just a breathe away, just a whisper away? Mary sought the Lord but didnt realize He was right there with her. The Lord is not far from us, He is right there at the end of our whispered cry and prayer to Him.
“In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”
‭Jeremiah 29:12-13 NLT‬
