Carrying the Cross

Recently TCW interviewed me for their online magazine – in it, we talked about Christians who 'throw in the towel spiritually' when suffering in their lives becomes too great. My response? Don't do it. The cosmic stakes are way, way too high! Take a moment, read the interview, then share it with a suffering friend whose faith is under attack. Lord willing, it'll widen their eternal perspective, and bolster their confidence in our Savior!

I read this interview after having watching Joni's talk (via Right Now Media) at the True Woman conference. The encouragement in this message is overwhelming. Suffering (perceived or real) puts the spotlight on anything but God. Thank you for the reminder to give glory to God, not suffering and to trust Jesus and not ourselves.

Dear Joni, thank you for reminding me that 'the stakes are just too high' to give up or water down our faith. I have discovered TCW and subscribed and already feel very blessed to have read many helpful articles on issues that have been bothering me for a while (eg why I don't seem to 'feel' things that other people do). Thank you again for your example and your encouragement. May you be richly blessed for blessing others and showing them the way to a closer walk with God.
