But Lord, this one in particular, its too hard....can I have an easier cross? Mine's a little rough.
If I could design the cross I would carry (not to presume anything), it wouldn't look like this cross.
What about carrying it THIS way? I'm not sure that the other way is the best way to carry it.
Can I carry it over here, Lord? I really don't want to go over there. Over here is kind of a nicer place.
I've been carrying this cross for a while Lord. Can I have a break? Can I stop now? Can I carry a different cross?
I know that others have heavier crosses, but this one is too much for ME.
Thank you, Lord, for dying on the cross and rising again for me. Because I'm a wimp, Lord, and I think I can do it better my way, and I kick and scream and whine all the way, just like the Children of Israel. Thank you for your loving patience, and for your forgiveness.
