1 Thessalonians 5:18 – Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (NIV)

A man complained that his cross (problems) was too heavy to carry. God, being a loving Father listened to him and said, ‘go into the selection room and pick a smaller cross’. While searching, this man saw bigger crosses and became more sorrowful. However, it was at the point of giving up that he spotted a tiny cross. So happy he was that he quickly grabbed it and told God, ‘I have found the lightest cross’. Then, God replied: ‘That was the same cross for which you were complaining.’

Beloved, on what are you lamenting— career, health, finance, marriage or fruitfulness? No matter what you are experiencing, it is for a purpose and season (Psalms 30:5). If it was possible to view other people’s problems, perhaps you will discover that your challenges are ‘just too little’. More so, many had the wish to be alive today, but they are no more. But, here we are; basking in God’s mercy. As seen in our Bible reading, appreciate your breath and the giver because when there is life, hope abounds (Ecclesiastes 9:4).

Remember that Job was afflicted, but he stood with God and was restored. If only you will hold on to God, you too shall celebrate! Therefore, I leave you with this: ‘Challenges might be inevitable, but the bigness of your test determines the weight of your testimony.’ Do not give up!


Hymn: To God Be the Glory — Fanny Crosby (1875)
