The cross to bear

Different people. Different cross to bear.

As human we have all kinds of cross to bear, both seen and unseen.

-It can be a husband or wife that is unfaithful
- Death of someone that is near
- Children that are going astray
- poverty
- being jobless
-being handicapped
- sickness
- unhappy marriage
- being alone

The list is endless. Each and everyone has a burden or a cross to bear. But it is up to us how we carry them. We can either carry our burdens alone or  seek help. Be joyful or be bitter. It is up to us. 

I wonder what Jesus felt when he carried the cross for us!  Was he lonely? Did it hurt so much? I am sure that no one of us can do the same deed. But still, His last word was " Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." It only means that He really understand us and he really cares.

So whatever cross that we are carrying, we don't have to carry it alone. Jesus carried our sins on the cross for us and He said:

Come to Jesus and find rest in your soul. I did:)




  1. I've also heard somewhere that carrying your cross means living like we're dying. Sort of like keeping in mind that our life here on earth is limited and has an expiration date.

    Because in the New Testament's time, whenever they see somebody carry a cross, the people know that that person is about to be persecuted.

    1. that's is a very deep interpretation of carrying a cross on earth. Good to know that although we must carry a cross, one day it will end and dying means going to paradise. Thanks for your comment. really appreaciate making contact with others and learning more:)

  2. You're right, Joy. We don't have to carry it alone. God promises to help us. See Isaiah 41:10.

  3. Thanks Michelle for the word and for dropping by:)
