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,

“My son, if you can’t bear its weight, just place

your cross inside this room.

Then, open that other door and

pick out any cross you wish.”

The man was filled with relief.

“Thank you, Lord,” he sighed,

and he did as he was told.

Upon entering the other door,

he saw many crosses, some

so large the tops were not visible.

Then, 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,

it helps to look around and

see what other people are coping with.

You may consider yourself far more

fortunate than you imagined.



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 at dawns 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.
