Lenten Reflection: Embracing the Cross

"This Good Friday we lovingly recall Jesus' journey to Mt. Calvary which fulfilled His promised redemption of our sins. We remember His joyful attitude in carrying the cross. He endured physical and moral suffering because of His unconditional love for us. " 

For each one of us has a cross that we should ardently embrace.

Life consists of triumph and struggles along the way, quite unpredictable as it seems. We all experience a splash of happiness and sprinkles of sorrow. Thus, we must always have hope even when we feel like being defeated. I believe God has His way to teach us lessons we can only learn in such hard ways to test us, to strengthen our faith even more. Truly, the cross we carry may be a symbol of hardship and agony most especially when it become too unbearable for us but we must not forget that the same cross is also a symbol of salvation and resurrection of mankind.

When Jesus collapsed under the wooden cross, He rose again. A lesson that whenever we fall from sin and difficulties, we should stand up, learn from our mistakes, strive to do better and be the best version of ourselves.  To have strong faith, deep courage and a forgiving heart. To accept and follow God's will, not just this Lenten Season but for every moment of our lives.

God wants us to struggle, but not to quit, 
to persevere and not to give up.
