Have you found your own cross to bear…
that which was told of us to carry?
There can be nothing more important
for a believer to do… don’t you tarry,
know you will be hated for His sake
and not for who you are, this our relief,
find His rest for His burden is light…
this is our proving ground for our belief,
stay close to your God and know it is by
your faith in Him [Jesus] is our comfort…
not the comforts of this Earth or what the
world says is good, their truth they extort
but The living God would lead you to take
up your cross, to give yourself in love…
the love you know and feel is His to give-
until this life passes and we gain it above.
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
