Is Your Cross Heavy
“You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”
I know that many of you today are bearing a cross, and a burden that is becoming heavy. It may be a serious illness, a marriage that is in trouble, a financial issue, a lost job, the death of a loved one, or a multitude of other problems that you are facing. How you bear your cross becomes the challenge that you are dealing with. In the above scripture Jesus said to “pick up the cross and follow me”. For Jesus, the cross He bore was the sins of all mankind. God has not asked you to bear such a burden, but your own cross is still heavy and He tells you how to bear it. The Bible tells us that we will have trials and troubles during our life, but God will not give us more than we can handle. It also tells us that we can’t do anything in our own strength, but that we need God to help us bear our cross. You must remember that God knows what is going on in your life right now, and knows the cross you are bearing. The Bible tells us also, that we are to be thankful for all things, and that includes even the problem you are facing today. Even though you may not understand why you are facing the trials and troubles you have, God knows and understands, as this is part of His plan for your life. Even though your cross may be heavy, God can lighten your cross and help you carry it. He can give you peace and comfort you during your struggle. He is with you every step of the way, and is there to help you. This is your time to reach out to God and get closer to Him. Let Him take control of your life today, and give you peace and let Him comfort you. The cross you bear can become lighter when you let Jesus pick it up and carry it for you, as He tells you to ask Him for anything in His name and He will do it.
