Mary was certain the Lord’s body had been stolen, and she sorrowed His death and His absence. I’ve been a Christian for nearly fifty years. You’d think by now I would have it all figured out. But there are still times when I weep in confusion, fear, or deep sorrow because things didn’t turn out the way I anticipated or wanted. I think of that question, “Woman, why are you crying?” Mary wanted to apply spices to Jesus’ body as an act of love and service, but how much better was it to discover He was no longer in need of those spices? Lord, help me trust and celebrate Your plan rather than holding onto and mourning my own wants.
