Deciding to take up your cross is never an easy decision to make.

But when a person experiences a relationship with Christ, it becomes a little more desirable. For me, Christ slowly introduced the concept of sanctification.

Not to become a Christian martyr, mind you, but to become a better student of His teachings. One that allows His love and grace to flow through me so that I and many others may have a more enjoyable and peaceful existence.

Letting Go

Once I let go of my fears to follow after Christ, I realized there was little to give up. I stopped listening to music, watching videos, and saying things that were contrary to His instructions in Scripture.

I began filling my mind and time with good thoughts and activities instead of negative ones. The overwhelming clarity and stability I attained after letting go has allowed me to gain a stronger relationship with Him.

So if you are struggling to fully follow after Christ, I can assure you that the most difficult part is beginning the journey. So take courage, stretch out your hand, and allow Jesus to lead you where you can be the best version of you in this life!
