John 20:14. Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus.

Mary knew Jesus well. She knew His voice. Yet she didn’t recognize Him. In her mind she thought she would never hear His voice again. Her mind was closed to the possibility. We also close our mind to possibilities. We look at situations and think it is up to us to decide what action is needed. Our mind isn’t,t open to hearing our God speak to us through His Holy Spirit within us. Thoughts enter but we ignore them because we don’t expect Him to be speaking to us. We might listen when we pray but prayer time is not the only time God speaks. By praying unceasingly it means for us to always be listening. Our question is do we want to hear or, like a distracted and tired mother of young are we tuning His voice out? Are we afraid if we hear it will be something we don’t like, an answer we don’t want? All He ever says to us is out of His perfect love for us. Let us choose to always keep our ears and mind tuned to hear His voice.
