Why are we so afraid of Crosses?
By Rita Davidson
Our Lord said, “Whoever taketh not up his cross and followeth Me, is not worthy of Me.” Matt. 10:38
Is it any wonder why we often shrink, recoil or hide from our crosses?
When I created “Organize Your Soul” online class, I was hoping I would find some fervent souls, so ready to embrace what is needed to refocus on our Lord, reach higher for heaven and find true peace. But the silence was….deafening.
This didn’t come easy, creating this class is a huge leap of faith for me! After all we have been through, losing so much from our fire, and our family crisis a few years back, my health has taken a toll. Taking good care of myself has been a key to getting back on my feet. But reaching out and creating a program to lead others was something I wasn’t ready for. “What if they don’t like it? What if it doesn’t help them?” And a million other thoughts threaten to scare me away from this. My new cross? J
I’ve been praying since our fire, for God to restore us and to guide me how to best serve the souls that have so patiently followed me over the years. It would have been much easier to just walk away.
But it’s readers like, Diane, who encourage me to do more,
Once again your words are so moving
so helpful. It’s as if I am in a classroom,
you are the teacher and the class is
How to survive the difficulties of life.
So many times I open my e-mail and there
are your powerful teachings”
The last time I got an answer from God like this was when I wrote, my bestselling book “Immodesty, Satan’s Virtue” – Lent 1999, in just 40 days! It was just like God gave me a download and I obeyed and that book went on to inspire thousands, I am still in awe.
As I heard what people are telling me, and pray about what is needed this program came to me like a thunderbolt, another instant download from God! I am again awed by anything I can do to help souls love God more.
What is so needed now is for souls to return to the beginning, to carry their crosses and lift them up not just begrudgingly but higher! Fear comes from our lack of trust in God. TRUST in God is what is needed to take the sting out of our crosses.
This is not about me, this is about you, your soul. I am only the broken vessel God is using to bring a truth that He knows is needed. I am no one special, but God has blessed me with knowledge not for myself but to bless others. Another reader asks, “How long is each session?”
I have made this class as easy as possible.
- With just one video per week, of less than 15 minutes each.
- An accompanying audio so you can listen to it as you drive, or do dishes.
- A weekly worksheet resource to help keep you on track.
- Includes your own copy of all video, audio recordings, so you can review them after as many times as you need.
Time waits for no one, and our time on this earth will soon end. My clock is ticking and all I wish is to share what I can to help save souls before my time is up. If this class helps only ONE person it will all be worthwhile. Find the time now so we can both spend heaven together one day! Don’t be afraid to take that first step!
Register here- Class starts TOMORROW!
