Do Not Be Afraid of Suffering

Then he said to all, “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Lk 9:23

Do you want to go to heaven? Are you tenacious in moments of suffering? Do you love your cross? Do you carry it with love for God and people? Do not be afraid! God is with you. He will give you the strength. Trust Him.

Blessed the man who follows not
the counsel of the wicked
Nor walks in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the company of the insolent,
But delights in the law of the LORD
and meditates on his law day and night.
He is like a tree
planted near running water,
That yields its fruit in due season,
and whose leaves never fade.
Whatever he does, prospers.
Not so the wicked, not so;
they are like chaff which the wind drives away. PS 1:1-4

My Lord, I give you all my suffering. Stay with me and give me strength. I trust in You.

Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him. DT 30: 19B-20A
