My cross

We all have periods of difficulty and bad situations.

Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.

Luke 14:27

I seem to be going through a bit of that right now, which makes me anxious. Surely God wouldn’t want me to suffer?

I had a wonderful priest advise that I should “offer my sufferings up for others.” I think I understand what the phrase means, but I still struggle to know how to do this.

It’s one thing to know it intellectually, and something entirely different to learn that in my soul. I do tend to be in my head way too much.

But God knows that about me, and doesn’t present challenges that I can’t handle. It’s about trusting Him and those around me.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:30

I’m still learning to trust this.
