In The Garden

By Pat Thacker

Even in beautiful places there can be so much sadness. We don’t have a clue as to how crushed Jesus was during this time.

Matthew 26:38-39 NKJV

Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.

But this does let us know that Jesus understands when we are in beautiful places and full of darkness. When we feel sad, confused, alone and full of doubt and fear we can look to Him who knows and cares for us. For he felt crushed beyond belief and God sustained him. Even though we have the word of God to hold onto there are times when it seems as if we cannot go another step! Once again we must remind ourselves to look to Him for he did say…

Acts 14:22 NKJV strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.”

2 Timothy 3:12  NKJV  Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

Hebrews 2:17-18 NKJV  Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

Sometimes our trials and tribulations come at us so fast it makes us tremble, but God has and always will bring us through. I am so glad that Jesus understands when we have many sad times in beautiful places!

Love in Christ,  Pat

 

serves faithfully as part of the World Prayr twitter team and graphic designs and considers herself to be a satisfied and happy Christian woman who loves the Lord.

She has been saved since 1972 and since then God has truly brought her quite a long ways & through many difficult hard trials and has learned that they do make you stronger and of course you can’t see that while going through them, because trials will blind you.

God blessed her with 2 beautiful children a boy & girl and they are both saved and praises and thanks God for that.

Pat enjoys blogging and has loved writing for many years.
