Pain

People who have gone through hip replacement surgery know that it is a very expensive process. The new hip costs a lot and then there are doctors’ fees and hospital charges. And there can be a lot of pain that follows this kind of surgery.

Every person in the world suffers some kind of pain. It may be physical pain after a surgery or illness. It may be the loss of a loved one. It may be daily struggles to pay the bills. Or it may be family relationships that are broken.

Jesus felt sorry for the crowds of people who came to him. Many were physically sick. Many just needed someone to lead them. In Matthew 11:28-29, Jesus offered rest to people in pain. “Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest. Accept my teaching. Learn from me. I am gentle and humble in spirit. And you will be able to get some rest.”

We will all have to go through some kind of pain in life. But Jesus offers to help us. He will give us His strength and peace to help us face our struggles. Trust Jesus and depend on Him today.
