Pick Up Your Cross
My Princess Warrior,

Nothing you hold onto in this life can be taken with you when your reign is over. If you will pick up your cross and lay down your dreams and desires, I will take you on a journey through this life that will be far more meaningful and adventurous than you could ever imagine. I know that what I ask feels like a great sacrifice--and it is! But What I offer you is a life that will live on long after you're gone, and faith that will be carved into the hearts of all those with whom you shared my love. So I ask again, My beloved: will you pick up your cross and follow Me?

Your Lord who sacrificed His life for you

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” - Matthew 16:24 (TNIV)

A Prayer to Follow Your Lord

Chosen one of God, may you find it easy to follow your King. May you find your life when you are willing to lose it for the sake of the Kingdom. May our Lord lift you up to a place higher than you could ever dream. May your choice to follow Christ echo throughout all generations that follow you, and may you receive rewards on earth and in heaven for your commitment to live for our mighty Lord. In Jesus' name, amen.

Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. - Matthew 10:38 (TNIV)
