Luke 14:27 Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.
“My beloved child, do not fear that which is to come, but embrace the cross as I did. My child, you are beloved and all those who love me I honor as partakers of my cross for the sake of the souls I created and died for. My child, pray, have faith and be at peace.”
Lord, in your strength alone will I be able to carry the cross. Here I am Lord. I come to do your will. Amen.
