Your will, not mine // 30-03-21

“He took Peter, James, and John with him. Distress and anguish came over him, and he said to them, “The sorrow in my heart is so great that it almost crushes me. Stay here and keep watch.” He went a little farther on, threw himself on the ground, and prayed that, if possible, he might not have to go through that time of suffering. “Father,” he prayed, “my Father! All things are possible for you. Take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet not what I want, but what you want.”” Mark‬ ‭14:33-36‬ ‭GNT‬‬

The only way to deal with the issues of the heart is to admit them and to talk about them – this is great mental health advice by the way from Jesus. He didn’t ignore how He was feeling, He acknowledged the sorrow in His heart, He talked to His friends about the distress He was in, and He talked to Father God, asking if there was a way to escape the suffering?But most important of all He put His trust in Father God’s plan. He settled His heart, and rather than being overwhelmed and crushed, His heart stayed truthful, faithful, graceful, powerful! Lord, thank You for those You have put in my life to talk to, help me to always be open and courageous, and thank You for always being there with me, I choose to put my trust in Your plan for my life. Your will, not mine! Amen 🙌🏼😊
