His Cross was Heavy 

We are all bearing a heavy cross. Some are trudging uphill in the heat of the day with theirs, and some are carrying their cross through a Texas-sized hurricane. It’s hard. 

Anxiety

Lust

Jealousy

Addiction

Loneliness 

Anger

Loss

Oppression

These crosses are heavy. They are back breaking and soul crushing. When we are in the midst of this uphill battle, we often times forget that the cross Christ bore would have been unbearable for humans. Not only did He lift a much heavier cross than we could ever imagine, He has promised to carry ours, too. Let Him take some of the load off of your shoulders today. He wants to help, but you have to let Him. 

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28–30).
