Many times I have heard from Christian people this saying, when you are going through a difficult situation (that is your cross) and that God would never give you a cross that you would not be able to carry. So you should have faith and patience and acceptance of the will of God, and ... surrender to Him (as Arjuna did in the Bhagavad Gita).
I wonder if there would be a similar analogy in the Vedic scriptures.
One thing that comes to my mind is the battle of Kurukshetra. Krishna took Arjuna to the front of the opposing army so that he could see those he would shortly face in battle.
so question is:
how I would
translate the cross saying into something from the Vedas?
