The Cross

When we have our problems sometimes we think that we're the most unfortunate human in this world.  We pity ourselves and blame others for what happened in our lives.  We asked God why He's giving it all to us and not on others.  We see others as better and luckier with their wealth, beauty, intelligence and success.  This should not be our thinking because we all have our cross to carry.  What differs is how we carry it meaning it's how we carry our problems and what approach are we applying to solve it.  God is testing us in His unique and caring ways that He's giving us some trials to make us stronger and more closer to Him.  Here's one story that I'd like to share with you, hope it will give you some inspirations.

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
