My road to Calvary


My burdens are heavy and the road is long, and along the way I will stumble. It’s the way it is meant to be. We saw this with the passion of our Lord, and his trip to Calvary.But is it really that heavy of a burden?Sure I have bills to pay, a kid to take care of, work issues to deal with and even Church politics to deal with. They all our my cross to carry, but really how heavy is it.The bills will get paid, some of them are pass due because I helped a family member out who decided not to pay me back, but he is my brother what was I to do? Sure I have work issues, but that’s only work, and they will get resolved. All in all the kid is a good kid, he is just a teenager and really is new to America (only been here a little over 18 months) As for Church politics, sad but true, but I think they are the worst, but I just have to keep in mind that I am doing it for the kids and for God.

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.

About Paul Sposite

Paul Sposite - Life Coach I began my career as an instructor. As an instructor there are two basic requirements. You have to know yourself, so you know where you’re drawing your inspiration from. And you have to actively listen to the others, and then respond to the subtext of what they are saying. In learning about myself I started to focus a lot on my students, how they learned, what questions they were asking and how I could best modify my methods to best serve them. I believe that if you use your real life problems/issues as insights to the issues you need to heal, you’ll grow. From my experience in the classroom, creating curriculum and material to support my training, I developed an interest in how people process information. This interest turned into my interest in Life Coaching.
