If you haven't figured it out yet, my faith is everything of who I am. When I thought of this I just couldn't let go.
God sent his only son to die on the cross. No one, not you or I could have taken Christ's place. It was his cross to bear.
This is my cross. It is heavy and it is mine. People can come along side you as you carry the cross. Christ had his friends and support, you have yours and I have mine, but in the end the only one who can bear your cross is you.
I have friends that have difficulties in their lives. I cannot take the obstacles and struggles away from them. I can come along side, I can give help, and I can even carry the burden for a little while, but it comes times one they can bear their own cross.
Each of us has our struggles. The pain is real and the anger, frustration and the cry of your heart is real.
The gift and peace comes in knowing that you are not alone and through all of it Christ is with you.
Hope, faith & love are the keys.
