Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.Matthew 11:28
Some days we wake up to disappointments. The holiday was interrupted by an urgent care visit. A coworker is out to eliminate your job. Or the green grass is ladened with a fresh blanket of snow in the middle of April. Disappointments can be wearisome. If only we could take our eyes off the problem and fix them on God’s perspective, perhaps, we could find contentment.
I’m still considering the visitors at the empty tomb of Jesus. In their grief they had to be devastated to find the body of Jesus missing. It was a heartache, upon already hurting hearts, because of the events in these people’s lives.
We will all face problems and disappointments today. If these challenges can be met with the merest mind of God’s plan, we can have a peace despite the situation. Weather is controlled by God. The urgent care workers can start healing in the patient. As for the obnoxious coworker, perhaps there is a better job waiting for you. Sometimes we will only make a change when events prod us along. Remember those events are controlled by God.
Yes, the tomb was empty because something better was about to happen.
