Gardens and Mountains
“And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.”
Matthew 26:37 NKJV
As I read this passage I thought of Jesus taking this same group of three, Peter, James and John, up on the mountain and He was transfigured before them. They were with Him on the mountain and they were with Him in the dark garden.
Sometimes following Jesus brings you to some high places where you experience great things. Other times are dark times, times of weariness. Both are real and both are necessary.
Every day with the Lord is a privilege, whether it’s in the garden or on the mountaintop.
Jesus, I count it a privilege to follow You today, wherever You go.
