A young man was at the end of his rope, seeing no way out, he dropped to his knees in prayer, “Lord, I can’t go on,” he said. “I have too heavy a cross to bear.”

The Lord replied, “My son, if you can’t bear its weight, just place your cross inside this room. Then, open that other door and pick out any cross you wish.”

The man was filled with relief and said, “Thank you Lord,” and he did as he was told.

Upon entering the other room, he saw many crosses; some so large the tops were not visible. Then, he spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.

“I’d like that one, Lord,” he whispered. The Lord replied, “My son, that is the cross you just brought in.”

When life’s problems seem overwhelming, it helps to look around and see what other people are coping with. You may consider yourself far more fortunate than you imagined.

Whatever your cross

Whatever your pain

There will always be sunshine

After the rain

 

Perhaps you may stumble

Perhaps even fall

But God’s always there

To help you through it all.

Meditation: And he said to them all, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. – Luke 9:23

You will succeed in Jesus Name!
