Going to the Cross Moments
Last week I was dealing with a difficult situation, something I did not want to do, actually dreading it. The dictionary describes dread by anticipating with anxiety or reluctance. You know the feeling? The more I mulled it over and over in my mind, the greater the dread. Oh, if I could only skip over this episode! But I had it to do. I prayed for God to show me a way to get through this with a better attitude.
As I was driving I turned on my radio to a Christian station and heard a man talk about “those going to the cross moments in our lives.” My ears perked up. I thought how Christ had prayed in the Garden for this cup to be taken away yet not his will but the Father’s will be done. It says in Luke 22, “being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.” Luke 22:42-44. NIV
I thought how Christ being part human felt the heavy weight of dread upon him, yet He gave over His will and sacrifice for us. He was obedient out of love. If Christ could do that, my difficult situation did not even hold a candle to it.
In this life we will face many times over “those going to the cross moments.” But just as Christ was not alone, He drew strength from the Father, so do we. Our strength to face tough times comes from Him. All it takes is coming to Him and asking. He can help us do what we could not do on our own.
I had an attitude change toward my situation and faced it completely different and you know what, it wasn’t near as bad as I made it out in my mind to be. God got me through it.
In much the same way I dreaded my Hep C Treatment, yet I knew on the other side, no matter what I had to go through there was going to be victory. It was definitely one of “those going to the cross moments” in my life, ever felt that way?
Here we are on this special weekend of Easter and today is Good Friday. If you are faced with a difficult situation right now I hope you’ll allow God to help you with your “going to the cross moment.” He knows exactly how you feel, He’s been there. Take a moment to think about how He went to the cross for you and what He went through. God promises victory on the other side of difficulty, no matter what the circumstances, He is there!
