Good morning! We are glad to see the rains come again out here on the dry plains of Nebraska, praise the Lord for his bounty. I am glad to read in an article this week that doctors and nurses are taking a new look at pain and how to treat it. So many suffer daily that it is strange this has not come up sooner. In James we read that those who suffer should pray about it. I urge all of us to not be afraid to bring our hurts to the Lord in prayer. Too often we "tough it out" or think that the Lord sends suffering so that he can watch us suffer. Certainly we can learn patient endurance, but that does not mean that we should be afraid or hesitant to ask for relief from our God. He loves us very much and just as you would not see your children suffer overlong, neither will the Lord allow us to suffer more than we can bear. This world is full of suffering, but the Savior is standing on the threshold, ready to come once more. Let us not give up hope and pray for each other daily in this.
May God grant you peace today!
