On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb. John 20:1
She probably couldn’t sleep from grief. She got up at the first possible moment and went to care for the body of Jesus. And he was gone.
When did she let go of the fear that someone had snatched his body and begin to hope he had risen from the dead?
Lord, help me to choose hope over fear. Let me rejoice in the gifts of today.
