Monday Morning Coffee ©️
Happy Monday people!
Why do we often complain about the weight of the crosses we bear and compare ourselves with those who carry seemingly lighter crosses?
Simon of Cyrene, a Gentile convert was passing through Jerusalem, when he was seized from the crowd and forced to carry the heavy cross uphill behind Jesus.
Simon just happened to be in the crowd on that day, the heavy cross was forced on him; he did not have a choice! (Luke 23:26)
On reflection, the crosses we bear in life are not of our own choosing, our crosses are just thrust on us suddenly often without warning!
And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. (1 Cor 10:13)
Sorry dear!…..You can’t choose your own cross!
Prayer for the Week
O Lord! The cross I carry feels so heavy, but you continue to provide the strength for me to bear it. Forgive me for grumbling when I have and as I follow Jesus may I find purpose in my pain.
