John 6:22-24 NRSVue
22The next day the crowd that had stayed on the other side of the sea saw that there had been only one boat there. They also saw that Jesus had not gotten into the boat with his disciples but that his disciples had gone away alone. 23But some boats from Tiberias came near the place where they had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks. 24So when the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into the boats and went to Capernaum looking for Jesus.

Some thoughts on this scripture
People often looked for Jesus where they had found him before, only gradually realising that he had moved on. So too in my life: when I can’t find God’s presence it is not that God has abandoned me I may be looking in some familiar place while God is working in a new way.
