What do you do when the strong person in your life suddenly becomes weak? I’m not sure I can even imagine what the disciples felt as they watched Jesus being taken away. He had always been ready with a word or an action. Now he is warning them that they are going to collapse around him. But will they? Will we?
Each morning I write in a journal, highlighting certain verses of scripture that stand out as I am reading and then adding a question or comment to consider for the day. At the bottom of the page, the journal has this question: How will I be different today because of what I have just read? Above this question I have highlighted the verse from Mark 14:38 – The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. When I am living under God’s control, I am moving against my own human weakness.
My prayer for today is found in Psalm 43. Lord, send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me. For today, let this be so in my life.
