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.
