Carry Your Cross & Shine Your Light
Psalms 55:22 (NLT) Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.
We’ve each got a cross to bear and a light to shine because we are followers of our Savior. Whew! That cross we have to carry gets knee dropping heavy at times, but we can trust that it will never become more than we can bear. And the light inside of us feels like it will flicker out, but it won’t because the source of our light lives within us.  No matter what it feels like at the time -Jesus will help us to carry the weight of our cross and to shine our light. There are times when we too readily want to lay everything down. But we must hold on. As we carry our cross, we give the burden on the cross to Jesus, because He can handle its weight best. And as we shine our light, we may demonstrate to God our faith in Jesus, and Jesus’ faithfulness to us. We do what we must do to lead the world to God’s Light.
