Luke 9:23 "If anyone would come after me,
he must deny himself
and take up his cross daily and follow me.
When you were alone,
I was with you 24/7/365.
When you were lonely,
I introduced you to other believers.
When you were weak,
I provided you with grace sufficient.
When you were still a sinner,
I still loved you.
When you were lost,
I walked you home.
When you tried to save the world,
I told you it’s already been done.
When you gave everything over to Me,
Your receipt is this little cross.
“It should be a lot bigger
for what you gave up.”
But he knows
(and you should too),
The main thing is not
your cross carrying
but to follow Me.
