The Cross Walk of Life
We complain about the cross we bear but don’t realize it is preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we cannot.
Yes, we say to God, “Oh almighty you are seeing that I am carrying this heavy cross which is just too huge for me. If you want me to complete the journey of life, I need to cut it down a little.”. And thus we cut down our cross day by day, feeling very comfortable than others in this journey of life. But, then, all of a sudden, a dangerous dip comes in our way. We can’t cross it by ourselves. What will others do? They use the cross as a bridge and cross over the dip, praising God for the Cross, without which it should have been impossible. And what will we do then?
We try to use our “small” cut down Cross as a bridge but soon realize that it has become so small a cross to help us pass the large dip on our way. So keep in mind, Our Cross is just preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we cannot.
Know This Fact:-
Whatever your cross,
whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine, after the rain….
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall;
But God’s always ready, to answer your call….
He knows every heartache, sees every tear,
a word from His lips, can calm every fear…
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish, by dawn’s early light…
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above,
to give you His grace, and send you His love.

I don’t trust myself nor my efforts. Jesus’ cross will allow me to pass to the other side of the gap, not mine. And nothing in this world can shorten the cross of my Saviour.
Really powerful images. Thank you so much.
Why don’t we make a deal with all humans, we use just one cross and take turn dragging it.
Why didn’t any of the others help him across? Why didn’t anyone stop and tell him that wasn’t the way?
Their crosses weren’t big enough to get across there if they didn’t stop to help someone else with their journey. This depicts us as each on our own. That’s not the Gospel I’ve learned.
Priss, i think this cartoon alludes to our lives in general and the choices we make. there isnt anyone who can choose for us but ourselves. I think this cartoon symbolizes Luke 9:23.
“Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.'”
Hope this helps~
Keep in mind that the dip in the road was created by God. This type of blind devotion makes me sick to my stomach.
So—the point is that if you don’t put up with God’s crap, he and all his followers will leave you to rot in isolation for eternity? What a nice sentiment.
The point is not “Soâ€”the point is that if you donâ€™t put up with Godâ€™s crap, he and all his followers will leave you to rot in isolation for eternity? What a nice sentiment,” or that God will punish us for “blind devotion.” God gives us hard times and struggles, our crosses, so we may be prepared for the greater and harder circumstances in the future. it is these hardships that help us to encourage others, that strengthen us, and that help us to draw closer to God and realize our great dependency on Him.
Anyone who is a Christian, atheist, or any other religion can admit that there was some good or silver lining that came from their struggles.
