When I originally started this Journal, my intention was to post at the very least one entry per month, unfortunately life happens.  I recently attempted to send some important documents to my school by fax, and the fax machine gave me a printed piece of paper saying that the function was not completed due to either a busy signal or no signal at all.  I could not help but laugh at the fact that we have a tendency to do the same thing as faxes.  We live by habits that alternate from bad to good and vice versa, and we just go day by day, going through the motions of life.  If God, our heavenly Father is not Numero Uno in our daily motions, which in most cases, He is not during the week, then sooner or later, we will be completely stressed.  Once Saturday or Sunday comes, we may put God first and allow Him to refresh us for one day, but then, the cycle kicks back to the week time and time again.  Every time, God is calling us to Him to rest in Him because His yoke is light, yet, we send that same error message as the fax, “busy/no signal.”  Every time we give that message to God, we wonder why things are not going the way we want them to.  In the Bible, a cross can be symbolized as a path or Will for one’s life.  Jesus Christ picked up his cross and died for us.  Jesus encourages us to pick up our crosses and follow Him.  The fact is God loves us and wants nothing but the best for us.  The most difficult task for us to do is swallow pride; ironically, our lives would be so much peaceful and joyful if we just let go of our pride.  Please pray that God will spark new love in your heart so that not one week goes by where you did not tell (better yet, show) someone else the Good News of God’s love.
