Until you learn to say Thank You Jesus, as you carry your cross everyday, you will not become a happy disciple of the Lord. Someone once said that everyday we go through five minor humilations or minor crisis situations and in our lifetime, we shall go through five major humilations or major crisis situations.
As a person of faith, instead of looking at these as humilations , we can look at them as crosses. I personally look at my daily cross as an opportunity to grow. Jesus said in Mathew 10;38 that “whoever does not take up his cross and follow after him is not worthy of me.” This means that if we do not take up our daily crosses we shall be disciples of Jesus.This is why I say that instead of complaining about our daily challenges or humilations, we should thank God for the crosses of the day, because carrying them will help us better disciples of Christ.
We also have to remember that without the help of Christ, we cannot carry our daily crosses.Your everyday cross, can come from your family, friends or enemies.Whichever way, it comes from, the most important thing for to do is to carry it, to grow from it and to love God more.
God always gives us the cross we need to love Him more.If you need patience, your cross will come in the form of impatient people or situations in which your patience will be treated.Don’t make the mistake of trying to carry your cross alone, present your situation to God and ask Him to help you.
