The Lord Does Not Get Rattled:

   What are the things that undo you?    Usually they are the little things of everyday life.  Unkind words spoken, too much attention, too little attention, misunderstanding.     Whenthere is no taking up of the Cross, there is no dropping of the Load.   The hands must be empty to take up the Cross and follow Him.     He wants to make His own likeness in you.  That means taking you through the things that will sand away the useless places.    Soldier of The Cross, you are being prepared for heaven. Refuse to be tipped over.  Learn to look at lend yourself to the things that are of importance to Him, not the things that are important to everyone else.
