Even the strongest of people get tired
at times, but God's power and strength
never diminishes. He's never too tired
to help and listen. His strength is our
source of strength.

~ See Isaiah 40: 29-31

A young man was at the end of his rope,
seeing no way out, he dropped to his
knees in prayer. "Lord, I can't go on," he
said. "I have too heavy a cross to bear."

The Lord replied, "My son, if you can't
bear its weight, just place your cross
inside this room. Then, open that other
door and pick out any cross you wish."
The man was filled with relief and said,
"Thank you Lord," and did as he was told.
Upon entering the other door, he saw
many crosses, some so large the tops
were not visible. Then he spotted a tiny
cross leaning against a far wall.

"I'd like that one, Lord," he whispered.
And the Lord replied, "My son, that is
the cross you just brought in."

When life's problems seem overwhelming,
it helps to look around and see what
other people are coping with. You may
consider yourself far more fortunate
than you imagined.

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine after the rain.
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall,
but God is there to help you through it all.
