So I will deal.
So really is my burden that heavy?
I could make a list of all my burdens, health, money, work, family, friends, pets and so on, but still would my burden really be that heavy?
Jesus took upon him all our sins, yet he was sinless, and he carried His cross uphill to Calvary.
Yes he stumbled 3 times, but he got up and made it to the top.
So really are my burdens that heavy?
I suffer very little in this life, when I look at the suffering of Christ. He suffered for me, yet he deserves none of it.
So really Do I suffer at all?
The road to Calvary was paved with our sin, and despair, it was covered with our doubt and hatred. The pot holes of humanity made the walk to Calvary hard for our Lord, but he made it.Our lies and deceits nailed him to the cross and our unconcern for each other held Him there.
So really is my life all that bad?
We need to look at our life in prospective, are we really living a hard life? Are we really caring our cross?Where is our Calvary? Can we make it on our own?
I stumble on my way to Calvary each and everyday, but unlike Jesus I can’t get up on my own, I need his help, the cross I carry is to heavy for me.
I pull my arm away when humanity tries to nail me to my cross, it is Jesus who takes the nail for me, because I am weak in the face of others.
I cry out curses at all who persecute me, it is Jesus who covers my mouth so no one hears, because I am to weak to control my rage and fears.
So yes, I fall in to the pot hole I have helped to make on the road to Calvary, and it is Jesus who carries me to Calvary.
The road is long, and the climb is tough, but with Jesus I will make it to the top, and with Jesus I can bear the burden I have created.
It is time I face Calvary.
It is time I learned to see it for what it is. Not a place of pain and suffering, but rather a place where love is poured out for you and me.
