Many people today face a host of challenges and feel they have many crosses to bear. They wonder if suffering and pain are the goals of creation and the burden of believing. In My Cross is My Opportunity, author Ujunwa Patrick Okeahialam, a Catholic priest, discusses how to overcome the obstacles and crosses and see them as opportunities.
In this spiritual reflection, he aims to make the idea of the cross less frightening. Using the example of the biblical Job, Okeahialam explains that although we remain oblivious of how some of life's challenges come about, we have the power to choose who gets glory from the difficulties we face: God or Satan. He communicates that God does not abandon his own.
A blend of wisdom from theological insights as well as a depth of personal pastoral experience, My Cross is My Opportunity encourages Christians to see barriers as ladders and bridges that can be used to achieve divine glorification.
