At Cross Purposes
By Sr. Nun Other
The idiom “at cross-purposes” is defined as two opposing viewpoints with goals that interfere with each other. On many days, that would be God and me. I expect that life should be as I want it: free of anxiety-producing situations. (Hello, unreality!) God desires me to be whole and complete by facing and walking through my fears, not alone, but with Him. Jesus said, If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23 In retrospect, the crosses I’m given are wonderfully light and perfectly designed.
