Jesus said, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me." Luke 9:23 Following are some real-life testimonies from people all over the world carrying their cross with the help of Jesus. Some of these stories may make you cry.

Matthew 11:28 It is my hope that these witnesses will help you to grow in compassion and understanding. It is my hope that you will want to pray for them and for people coping with similar problems.
