Bear your Cross

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, there will always be sunshine, after the rain ... Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall, But God's always ready, To answer your call .. He knows every heartache, sees every tear, A word from His lips, can calm every fear .. Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night, But suddenly vanish, in dawn's early light .. The Savior is waiting, somewhere above, To give you His grace, and send you His love . Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, "God always sends rainbows ... after the rain ... "
To get out of difficulty, one must usually go through it! God never gives you more than you can bear – So bear it willingly and you will rejoice in your rewards!

I love this poem above. It is a reminder that none of us are perfect, but through those imperfections we are humbled by the daily presence and grace of God. He is wanting us to seek HIM. Ask and allow Him to bring you comfort, cast your worries unto the Lord and have faith in Him. May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.. May you be content knowing you are a child of God.... Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.
“we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsake; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”
It is true we must weather the storm to appreciate the rainbow. By His grace....Leigh
