Carry Me to the Cross
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life."
When I was fourteen years old after viewing The Passion of the Christ movie with my parish youth group I remember having such an overwhelming sense of such absolute love and admiration within the depth of my soul for our Lord, Jesus Christ. I remember feeling as if I was right there at the foot of the cross watching our Savior suffer in pain and agony as he made the ultimate sacrifice to save us from our sins. God sent his only Son to grant us eternal life with Him if we choose to follow and believe in the light and the way of truth of Jesus Christ. We are able to look at the cross and to know that no matter what we are experiencing in our lives Jesus is right there suffering along with us. We are never alone. He knows of our pain and our sorrow, and if we trust in him and hold onto beautiful hope that the best is yet to come we will experience the promise that God made to us. We need to remain open to His holy will even if we are faced with challenges and obstacles along the way.
