"Who are you looking for?" John 20:15 Mary was looking for Jesus. And aren't we all? And He said her name. And she knew His Voice. Do I? In the midst of the commonplace, in the midst of the miraculous, may we hear what stirs within us. That still small Voice saying, "Come." This is Who you are looking for. This is Home.

You would have no power unless it is given you from Above. John 19:11. All the things of this world depend on above; and when they agree above first, they agree below. There is no power below, until that, "power is given from above"; and the whole of that depends on this." And the whole of my life depends on Him and where He has placed me this day.

“Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?” John 18:11 If we live by the sword, we die by the sword. It's a violent life. It's not Peace of God. Sin was birthed in a Garden. Christ was betrayed in a Garden. Christ was buried in a Garden. May we surrender in the Garden and drink deeply from the Living Water.

Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that you sent me. John 17:20

"Continue in my love. Keep up your love to me, and then the troubles you meet with will not be overwhelming, but love made seven years’ hard service easy like Jacob. "Let not the troubles you meet with for Christ’s sake quench your love to Christ, but rather quicken it." Let his joy remain in you, and fill you,"You didn’t choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain." John 15:16. And where that Love is not possible, pray like your life depended on it for Something is always going on. "And when we pray (for Love), Something of Heaven comes down." Jim Cymbala

The Holy Spirit will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Don’t let your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful. Would we know these things for our good But. If by any definition but God's, we must pray, depend, and lean into the teaching of the Holy Spirit; and the words of Jesus will be brought to our remembrance, and many difficulties be cleared up which are not plain to others.
