Experiencing hardship is never easy. It can be agonizing, exhausting, and depressing. There have been times in my life when I have instantly sensed ’s awesome presence with me during difficult circumstances. But there have been even more instances when it seemed as though God was nowhere to be found. 

While Jesus was in the garden of Gethsemane awaiting His fate, His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground as He prayed. He knew that what He was about to endure was going to be excruciatingly difficult. He didn’t even hesitate to ask God if He could be spared from the suffering. Jesus felt utterly alone. Even His friends had fallen asleep during the most crucial moment in his life. 

Not only did Jesus ask if His cup of suffering could pass, but He prayed for strength and embraced the of His heavenly who gave Him the power to endure.  

Today, no one enjoys going through trials, especially feeling alone. But in these moments, God asks us to trust Him. will pass. But with patience, prayer, and a heart full of hope and trust, we can live through them, knowing God can give us lasting peace and deep joy that will outlast any pain and sorrow. 

“Let us run with the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him, He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” 12:1-2 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank You, for the of Your which comforts me during the difficult times in my life. Father, I ask for Your strength to empower me, and for hope to fill my heart. God, I walk through this current situation trusting You and believing that You have something in store for me and those around me. Lord, I open my heart to Your will and Your way. In Christ’s name Amen.
