Pain

I have been in pain all day.  Physical not mental.  I have an infection in my face that hurts.  It has drained me.
Pain
This is not all that bad compared to what my Lord endured in His last day.  He was betrayed by all that followed Him.  He faced the mental anguish of knowing that His Father would abandon Him.  He faced the travesty of a mock trial.  He was physically scourged.  The pain was more than physical.  It was mental.  It was spiritual.

I am worn out with the pain from a little infection.

After all of that He carried the cross most of the way to His crucifixion.  Then after being nailed to the cross bar, He controlled the rest of the event.  Choosing when to give up His Spirit.

That kind of strength in the face of that level of pain is overwhelming.

Our Lord was and is a strong Lord.
