Jesus Christ experienced hematohidrosis while praying in the garden of Gethsemane before his crucification as mentioned by Luke; “and being in anguish he prayed more earnestly and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.” (Luke 22:44) Yes . . . to the point of sweating blood . . . Jesus was obviously stressed, anguished and even perhaps fearful of what was to come! Yet Jesus would not quit! He turned to God in prayer . . .
Where do we turn when stressed, anguished and to the point of giving up? To whom (Whom) do we turn? Some choose drugs . . . some sex . . . some alcohol . . . some binge watch shows . . . others turn to food. As believers we need to choose to turn to the One Who knows our troubles and cares for us more than anyone else. (1 Peter 5:7) If Jesus had to turn to the Father, why don't we?
