verse 4: Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
There must be times I miss Jesus’ presence, or even miss His miracles. The disciples weren’t expecting Jesus to show up. They weren’t looking for him. But there He was, with help and comfort for them. Jesus can still appear to me, through the Holy Spirit, both in me and in others. Am I ready to see Him, when he helps me by moving in another as the Holy Spirit? Do I thank God for each generous gift? When someone else acts in the name of the Holy Spirit, do I recognize this? This is impossible to do perfectly, but I think God is telling us He is everywhere, and in everything, ready to comfort and help us. We need only open our eyes to Him.
Holy One, you are everywhere, in all things. Your love and mercy, comfort in all trials, is everywhere. I only need to open my eyes and be aware. When I live for you, I will recognize you. Amen
