Shadow Crosses

Post  mikeschultz on Tue Jan 15 2013, 13:25

Jesus bade me, “Take up your cross with me.”
With my arms outstretched, my shadow revealed
I, myself, in me, am my own cross,
Yet I’m seldom able to bear it well.

With unforgiven pain I went humbly,
Bearing up my shame and my heavy heart,
As gifts I laid at the feet of Jesus,
Who filled me with divine gifts of His own.

God has changed me, but I do not forget
The story I must witness to others,
Sharing of my strength, my hope, and my faith.
I am renewed, as are others as well,

When He picks up His cross and continues,
Taking up shadow crosses from the ground.

Note: Please do not be offended for me writing from and referencing the religious background of my life, and I will do the same for you. Thanks. m
