THEN JESUS SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, “IF ANYONE WOULD
COME AFTER ME, HE MUST DENY HIMSELF AND TAKE
UP HIS CROSS AND FOLLOW ME.” ( MATTHEW 16:24 *NIV )

Dear Friend,
We all have crosses to bear in this life.  Perhaps your cross
may seen like a heavy one, however if you look around you will
find others with a much bigger one than yourself.

Therefore when your “Cross” seems to heavy remember
that God is there helping you carry it.  After all God has said,
“NEVER WILL I LEAVE YOU; NEVER WILL I FORSAKE
YOU.”  ( HEBREWS 13:5 )

So put your faith in God, and remember that Jesus said,
“DO NOT LET YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED.  TRUST IN
GOD; TRUST ALSO IN ME.  ( JOHN 14:1 ) 
Then let the
wings of faith uphold you, uphold you indeed!

May the wings of faith uphold you
When your cross is hard to bear,
As temptations surround you,
And no one seems to care.
May the wings of faith surround you
And shield you from the pain
When sorrows overcome you
And teardrops fall like rain.
May you know that God is with you
In times of deep despair.
May the spirit, who’s within you,
Confirm that He is there!
May the valley of the shadow
Provide angels unaware…
May the wings of faith uphold you
When your cross is hard to bear.
Poet, Clay Harrison

Have a wonderful Tuesday Friend, and may God’s peace be
with you this day and always.   Amen.

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
