Crosses aren’t nice things. We all have them. But they make us who we are.
Jesus carried his Cross to redeem the world. The way we carry our Crosses define us.
We can complain that we are victims and that God is cruel. Or we can carry our Crosses like Jesus did, and turn adversity into strength. We can learn from our suffering and strive each day to be a blessing to others.
I always try to do the latter. I often fall to the former.
But I press on, because it’s the least I can do for the King who died for my sins.
