~ The Path And The Cross ~

~ The Path And The Cross ~

No matter where you walk
Or what you're searching for
You will find no higher path above
Nor safer road below
Than the path leading you to God's Love

Plan out everything as you wish
Still, there will be pain and suffering
Deep within your life
Whether you wish it or not
You must bear the same version
Of the holy cross

Sometimes God may leave you
To your own devices
Sometimes your neighbor
Will cause you to be distraught
And inevitably, at some point
You will become lost

God wants you to endure affliction
A lesson you need to learn
To submit yourself to Him
To become truly humble
By experiencing that which hurts
And not coincidentally
Teaches you to walk your own path
And to bear your own cross...

HI Love, that picture is haunting!  Our poor Savior suffered, and if He suffered, it is a given we will suffer in this life, and have a path that will only lead us to God in our humility.  I often feel I have no right to complain about aches and pains when I think of the crucifixion.  We all bear our own cross in life.  Faith is such a personal walk.  Religion has caused wars and violence since the beginning......which goes totally AGAINST what God intended....He wanted a close relationship with His creation.....and the cross brings us back to Him as a  promise that we will be reconciled...I hold onto that hope and plan.  Always share your faith so that others may feel that glow, T.  I love you for it.  xo Kisses and respect, C xoxxx
