My understanding of what happened in the Garden on Holy Thursday is … so limited.

Sure, I know the story, and I even see images in my mind. We read it every year.

But still, there are so many more layers to the story.

Jesus was tempted beyond belief. His anguish was palpable, because He clearly saw the trials which awaited.

But … He also showed us that the agony is temporary. Life is temporary, and is endurable when we focus on what awaits in eternal life.

Thank you, Christ, for showing us how the trials during this lifetime are worthy of enduring.

God leads.
