Mark 15:20 tells of the divine encounter between Jesus and Simon the Cyrene on the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. Simon came from a faraway land, and it would have taken him two months to reach Jerusalem – only to be met with the Roman soldiers on the day he arrived, and forced into a task he had not signed up for. Whenever we meet with a challenging situation in our lives, we, too, ask ourselves, “Why me?” Yet we often fail to realise that nothing is coincidental in God’s plan. Only when we choose to trust Him in obedience and carry the cross will we be able to see and understand His perfect plans for us.
