The Cross

In times when we feel that the trials in our lives are just too much to bear, remember that Jesus already carried our cross for us.

There is no suffering too great that Jesus Himself didn't surpass.  No pain so agonizing that Jesus Himself didn't heal from.  No trial too immense that Jesus Himself didn't overcome. 

For Jesus conquered even death and sin.  His love is far greater than all the problems in this world. 

He suffered for our sake.  His cross is the symbol of His unconditional love for us.  He died so that we can live.

So whenever we find ourselves troubled and burdened of carrying our crosses...  let us always consider that Jesus' cross was much heavier than ours yet He didn't give up. His unwavering faith is His strength.  His Father's love became His source of inspiration, knowing that at the end of it all is eternal happiness, peace and lifetime in heaven.   

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, whoever believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life". - John 3: 16
