young man was at the end of his rope, seeing no way out,
his knees in prayer. "Lord, I can't go on," he said. "I have too heavy
of 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
door and pick out any cross you wish." The man was filled with relief
said, "Thank you, Lord," and he did as he was told. Upon entering
other door, he saw many crosses, some so large the tops were not
spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.
"I'd like that one, Lord," he whispered. And the Lord replied, " My
son, that is the cross you just brought in." When life's problems
overwhelming, it helps to look around and see what other people are
coping with. You may consider yourself far more fortunate than you
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
Funny how you can send a thousand "jokes" through e-mail and they
spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding
the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny, isn't it, when you
go to forward this message how many on your list are not receiving it
because you're not sure they believe in anything?
May God give you the strength and courage to send this along....
