WHY ARE YOU CRYING AND WHO ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?


And Jesus said unto her, woman why are you crying? Who are you looking for?

Supposing Him to be the gardener, she said to Him, "Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away."

Sir, tell me where you've put Him and I'll go get Him.


Oh, sir! Just give me Jesus, then I'll be alright! John 20:15


“And we're still looking! And we go to all of these other places looking for our fulfillment and our satisfaction and our joy and our peace and our meaning for life and our reason for existence. And we just can't seem to find it and we're still looking. And Jesus says, “What are you looking for?! What are you looking for?! What are you looking for? WHO are you looking for?” ” [Quote from Anne Graham Lotz]




This chapter (John 20) has been on my heart most of the night, so I just had to share it.

So many of us, in the human condition that we find ourselves in, run to and fro in our daily lives. We seek answers. We want solutions to the problems that we face at home, at work and in every aspect of life as we know it.

And then there is Jesus. He stands before us and says, here I am. Why are you crying? Why are you fretting? What are you looking for? WHO are you looking for?

I AM here.

I AM your answer.

I AM your solution.

Blessings of peace everyone and all that is good,
Debra

"Thank you for the video clip" hardly seems like enough to say, but it was a nice way to start my day.

oh WOW Debra... how powerful this was to hear tonight. I love Anne Graham Lotz and Fernando Ortega, it might be my most favorite song, but the message... Just give me Jesus!... Here we have the answer to everything in life, and so often we overlook who He is or our eyes momentarily dim. This was so a gift to listen to. Thank you so much for sharing it.

So glad for the ever-present Christ who stands and lives to wipe our tears and answer the cries of our hearts.

Debra, I love this! I have always loved that scripture. Mary Magdalene will go to any lengths to find Jesus. I want to do the same! Thanks and God bless!

I love this scripture and the video is awesome. Here I am Lord.

I have just now caught up on your recent posts. I am laughing about the Saint's Pj bottoms. We were like that during baseball season for our kids. LOL!

Have a blessed day.
