People ask me if I have a favorite.
Well ... all of them really, but one that got my attention early on was while I was working out.
Reclined on a leg press machine, angled upward, after several sets I rest my head back, look up, and see the exposed rafter, wooden boards, forming all these crosses. I felt like I was on Candid Camera.
I remember getting up from the machine and look around wondering “Am I the only one who sees this?” I was praying while working out during a very uncertain time in my life. I literally take a rest, shift my eye focus, and see the Cross. Showing up when I needed it. It was the stark timing that making such an impression.
Seeing this everyday cross brought me hope; to not be anxious in thought, but to look up and trust. Pause. Take a rest.
The repeating pattern of worry in my mind was replaced with the repeating pattern of the Cross.
It’s not one of the more pretty photos in the book, but the timing & message made it memorable.
Each one of the “everyday” crosses in this book was significant. Placed and timed for me when I was praying, seeking, and at times really struggling with where I was in life.
I found faith in the EVERY day.
