Offer it up is a phrase we are used to hearing. But it can be very difficult to offer up pain and agony. We look for ways to avoid the pain, and medicine to alleviate the pain. The pain of the heart can only be eased through offering it up to God as there is no other medicine but Jesus. Like us, Jesus prayed that he could be spared. The answer was “Not my will but your will be done”
Lord Jesus, I pray not to be put to the test but if it is to be, I pray that I can know and accept God’s will for me.
