Pick it up and He will carry it with you
Let our walk with Jesus blossom into beautiful flowers
Let's get rich, true riches
From my many years experience I can unhesitatingly say that the cross bears those who bear the cross Sadhu Sundar Singh
When you commit yourselves to Jesus be prepared for many painful crosses. For me one was separating myself from my family, culture and home to serve Him in another land. Maybe it is an inbred personality trait. For me it was wanting to destroy anyone who angered me, I do not mean to kill, rather to psychologically torture them until they were on their knees begging me to stop and were a puddle. I dare say I was an expert at it to. At first it was like a blazing fire in my brain, refusing to fight back when someone did me wrong and truly leave it in Jesus’ hands. Now I close my eyes and picture leaving the situation at the feet of Jesus, then just walk away. It feels so much better doing it Jesus’ way.
What ever it is, you can be sure, part of being a Christian is picking up a burning cross. I will share with you something okay?
Whatever your cross believe Jesus is right there carrying it with you. Suffering with you. He does this because He loves you. Are you carrying a heavy burning cross right now? Close your eyes. Picture Jesus Shalom- the Lord of our peace- carrying that cross with you and whispering to you: “Do not worry my beloved child. We will carry this together.”\
Prayer: Oh my wonderful and special Jesus. Thank you for giving me the crosses You have to carry. They help keep me humble. Thank you my beloved for being right here with me every step of the way. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day.
