If right now you can find no hope but only suffering and desolation in the cross you’ve been handed to carry – what is just killing you now – surrender your life and surrender your death, your many deaths, to Jesus. You have nothing more to lose. Live your life inside of Christ who lives inside of you. He will embody you and enable you. This is Jesus’ way, the way of the cross.
