The Garden of Gethsemane

Wow…this may have been the most powerful experience of the entire trip for me. We got to spend about 45 minutes in a quiet, private area of the Garden of Gethsemane just praying and listening to God by ourselves. As I read back through the gospel accounts of The Garden of Gethsemane, I just kept looking around going, “I can not believe that I am sitting right here under one of these olive trees. Many of the trees in Gethsemane are over 2000 years old, which means they would have been there the night Jesus prayed, struggled, and sweat blood as Judas betrayed him and He was arrested.
Those 45 minutes went by way too fast and it was such a thin place for me, where I sensed the presence of God and heard as He spoke to my heart. I don’t think I will ever forget my time with The Lord in that garden! I did not want to leave!

  1. Seeing this makes my heart beat fast. Especially, the trees that were there when Jesus cried out to God. I can’t imagine sitting under one of those trees, WOW! I feel emotional thinking about that. I can not wait to hear all about this day!!
