“Some days we hug the cross; and some days we cling to it.”
One of my best friends said this phrase to me one day. She meant it as though some days joy is so easy to choose, and praising Jesus is the first thing on our minds. But other days are not so easy. In fact, they are so hard and sucky and terrible that our only option for hope is clinging to the cross.
I pray that no matter what brings me to the cross, I am always near to it.
