2 – Jesus takes up his Cross.
Have I ever taken up my cross?
What is a crushing weight in my life?
Am I willing to surrender to your will?
Do I refuse and run from it?
Do I have faith in the eventual outcome?
Am I whining often filled with self-pity?
Am I crabby?
Will I carry it without complaint?
Help me to be obedient to what you ask of me, even if it’s difficult.
Let us pray:
Lord, thank you for blessing me with your amazing grace and love, and offering me access to deep wisdom and surprising inner strength. You present me with surrender and faithfulness. Here I am Lord, welcoming, embracing and embodying your gifts, filled with profound gratitude.
