THE CROSS ROOM

The young man was at the end of his rope. Seeing no way out, he
dropped to his knees in prayer. "Lord, I can't go on," he said. "I have
too heavy a cross to bear."

The Lord replied, "My son, if you can't bear its weight, just place
your cross inside this room. Then, open that other door and
pick out any cross you wish."

The man was filled with relief. "Thank you, Lord," he sighed,
and he did as he was told. Upon entering the other
door, he saw many crosses, some so large the tops were
not visible. Then, he spotted a tiny cross leaning
against a far wall. "I'd like that one, Lord," he whispered.

And the Lord replied, "My son, that is the cross you just brought in."

When life's problems seem overwhelming, it helps to look around
and see what other people are coping with.
You may consider yourself fortunate.
