CARRY YOUR CROSS




When we hear the phrase "carry your cross," it often brings to mind tough times and struggles. But there's more to it than just enduring hardships. It's about walking alongside Jesus, sharing in His victory, and surrendering to His plan for our lives.

 

Think about Jesus carrying His cross to Calvary. Yes, it was heavy and painful, but it was also a moment of triumph over sin and death. In our own lives, carrying our cross means facing challenges with the assurance that Jesus is with us every step of the way.

 

Let me share a personal story. After my husband and I were ordained as pastors, life took us on a whirlwind journey. He got a big promotion, but at the same time, we faced heartache. We lost a loved one, our sons had accidents, and I had health issues. It felt like joy and sorrow were battling for our attention.

 

But in the midst of it all, we received a message that reminded us we weren't alone in this struggle. Just like Jesus faced opposition on His journey, we were also experiencing spiritual warfare. It was a tough pill to swallow, but it helped us understand that every step forward in our faith journey comes with its challenges.

 

Carrying our cross isn't just about enduring tough times; it's about letting go of the old to make room for the new. It means trusting Jesus to guide us through uncertainty and finding joy in His presence along the way.

 

we are called to embrace the tension between suffering and joy inherent in the cross of Christ. We are invited to journey with Him through the darkest valleys, knowing that His presence sustains us, and His victory awaits us. In the midst of our own trials and tribulations, may we fix our eyes on Jesus, drawing strength from His example and finding hope in the promise of redemption and restoration.

 

So, as you navigate life's ups and downs, remember that Jesus walks beside you, offering strength and comfort. Keep your eyes on Him, and you'll find the courage to carry your cross and emerge stronger on the other side.
