Mommy Growing up: Carry our own cross

Carry our own cross

Yesterday’s homily was really good and hit me right through. It was about carrying our own cross (problems, sacrifices, etc.) in our lives. Oftentimes, we complain to God about the crosses we've been bearing. Little did we know that this cross has been preparing us for the path in the road that only God can see and we cannot.

God wants us to carry our cross with gladness. Jesus too willingly carried His cross and gave His life for us. 

Thus, I should fully trust God for He knows what’s best for my life. 

God loves us so much and will never abandon us.

Lord, whatever our cross,
Whatever our pain, we believe that
There will always be sunshine, after the rain…
Perhaps we may stumble, perhaps even fall;
But Lord you are always there ready, to answer our call…
You know every heartache, see every tear,
A word from Your lips, can calm every fear…
Our sorrows may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish, by dawn’s early light…
You are always with us
To give us Your grace, and embrace us with Your love.
Lord may you always fill us with Your blessings and love!
                                                             (source: a prayer kindly shared to us by Fr. Leo)

It's great to be grateful all the time. With or without our crosses. God is worthy to praised. 

Have a blessed day everyone!


  1. I agree with you post. It's my belief, that our crosses are what bring us the Christ-like character traits we need to be like Him...I just wish they weren't so

  2. Carrying a cross is not easy but so essential for growing as Christians. Thank you for linking up with On Your Heart, Tuesday
