The Crosses of Life

The young man was at the end of his rope.
Seeing no way out, he dropped to
his knees in prayer.
"Lord, I can't go on," he said.
"I have too heavy a cross to bear."

The Lord replied, "My son, if you
can't bear its weight, just place your
cross inside this room. Then pick
out any other cross you wish."
The man was filled with relief.

"Thank you, Lord," he sighed.

He opened the door and set down
his cross. He walked around and
saw many crosses, some so large
that the tops were not visible. Then
he spotted a tiny cross leaning
against the far wall.

"I'd like that one, Lord," he whispered.
And the Lord replied, "My son, that is
the cross you just brought in."

When life's problems seem overwhelming,
it helps to look around and see what
other people are coping with. You may
consider yourself far more fortunate
than you imagined.
