You remember the Garden of Gethsemane. It where Jesus prayed, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me” (Luke 22:42). But do you recall that he prayed in such agony, his sweat turned to blood? It’s in our nature to question the circumstances in our lives, to ask why. But how do we get to the point of trusting God enough to say, “nevertheless, not my will but Yours be done.”
