When we struggle with disappointment, we need to choose to hear Jesus ask us, “Who are you looking for?” Remember, He asked Mary Magdalene that question on the morning of the resurrection, when she thought her world was crashing in on her. When we look for Jesus in the idle of what’s wrong or not working, we discover He’s always there, bringing peace and comfort. We can sit with Him for as long as it takes to be reminded of what’s always true, no matter what might be true for a moment. He loves us. He is with us. He is here.
Jer. 29:13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.
