Have you ever heard someone say, in effect, “I am such a mixed bag of emotions”? Perhaps you have felt that way yourself at times. On the one hand there is this emotion of excitement, and on the other hand is the emotion of fear.
As Jesus entered Jerusalem for the last time do you think that He may have been going through the same thing? People are celebrating His entrance, shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David; BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Hosanna in the highest!” (Matthew 21:9). I am sure Jesus was embracing this, but at the same time He knew that this week would end in His torturous death; but the death would lead to His victorious resurrection!
As you deal with your emotions try to reflect on what Jesus was going through during this last week. He can understand what you are going through, and He is with you!
