Simon from Cyrene: The Husband Journal Entry Number 24

blog pics 005Mark 14:21  A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross.

Just picture this scene where Simon helps Jesus carry the cross.  I often think of that as a picture of what marriage is supposed to be like.

When one spouse is down and out, the other has the strength to carry through the day.

At times we may feel beaten to a pulp.  Then just simply ask your spouse to help carry the weight on your shoulders.  If God had Simon to help Jesus in Jesus’ worst moment of his earthly life, God will strengthen your spouse to carry your cross.

I have at times come to a point of tears after a day of exhaustion.  I simply ask my husband to take over the bed time routine for the kids because I need help.  That’s my cross………..caring for my children.

Be strong in the Lord,
