tears : sweat

We have a High Priest who we can empathize with, more than we can ever realize. Though I doubt Jesus was ever tempted to check His facebook status several times a day, I know He was tempted in other ways, ways that I've never experienced (and hopefully never will).

My pitiful sufferings compared to His gargantuan torment. My bitter tears compared to His bloody sweat. Who am I to whine and complain? I need to trust my God more. How can my faith be so weak? My trials are nothing compared to those of Job, or of the Apostles.

Lord, please forgive my weakness. I'm nothing without Your strength.
