Not My Will But Yours

Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Yet not my will but yours 
be done.” 

I’m tired and don’t feel good today.  I didn’t want to write.  Yet I remember what Jesus said to God the Father.  Jesus did not want to receive 40 less one lashing that would take out chunks of His flesh.  He didn’t want a crown of thorns mashed down on His head.  He didn’t want to drag a cross beam through crowded streets in the midst of jeering, angry voices.  He didn’t want to be stripped naked and nailed to a cross.  He did want to do His Father’s will and do all this for me so I could be forgiven and have fellowship with Him and the Father and be with them for all eternity.  All He’s asking me to do is sit, pray, listen, read scripture and write what I hear.  How can I do less no matter what is going on or how I feel.  Many times we find we are faced with a situation we don’t really want or maybe don’t even like.  If we have given God our lives, if we give the day to Him for His will and His glory then anything that comes our way  is there for us to face through His hand for His purpose.  Our question is do we choose to trust and serve God through and in the midst of all things?  He did so much for us.  How can we not do so little for Him.
