End of the Rope
A young man was at the end of his rope.
Seeing no way out, he dropped to
his knees in prayer.
“Lord, I can’t go on,” he said.
“I have too heavy a cross to bear.”
The Lord replied,
son, if you can’t bear its weight, just place
your cross inside this room.
Then, open that other door and
The man was filled with relief.
“Thank you, Lord,” he sighed,
and he did as he was told.
Upon entering the other door,
saw many crosses, some
so large the tops were not visible.
he spotted a tiny cross
leaning against a far wall.
“I’d like that one, Lord,” he whispered.
And the Lord replied,
My son, that is the cross you just brought in.”
When life’s problems seem overwhelming,
helps to look around and
see what other people are coping with.
You may consider yourself far more
than you imagined.
Whatever your cross, whatever your pain,
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
calm every fear.
Your sorrows may linger throughout the night,
suddenly vanish at dawns early
The Savior is waiting somewhere above,
give you His grace and
you His love.
Whatever your cross,
whatever your pain,
always sends rainbows
