Joni Eareckson Tada, a paraplegic for about fifty years, observed the following: “There is nothing more intimate than finding Jesus in your garden of Gethsemane.” Joni has experienced everything from depression to physical pain for all of these years. She has written a book about those experiences. In A Spectacle of Glory: God’s Light Shining Through Me Every Day, she noted that God’s light shines the brightest when we are at our weakest. Joni has experienced her own Gethsemane. She continues to live for His glory, as she lives in her own brokenness and weakness. From A Spectacle of Glory: God’s Light Shining through Me Every Day (Zondervan, 2016).
Have you found Jesus in your Garden of Gethsemane? Can you share what that was like?
