12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

Ever feel weary?


“Come to me, all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest...” Savor those words of our Savior... especially the word “all.”  Let the invitation soak into your soul.  “Come to me,” our Savior says. He speaks to “all who are weary and burdened.” That includes you and me.

Weary goes beyond needing one good night’s sleep.  Burdened means much more than fending off the worry or two that occasionally pops in our heads. What wearies and burdens you right now? When we find ourselves in the long, dark tunnel of weariness and burdens, Jesus meets us there.

Just think of that! Jesus meets us there in those dark places, those dark times when we feel lost.  His presence and His promise transform the darkness, making even our weariness in our burdens a blessing. After all, these things have opened our ears in our hearts to his invitation. They drive us into our Savior’s arms.

It’s all good. Or, rather, it’s good when we let our Savior’s words of hope and promise seep through, transforming our pain. It’s good when we turn our back on the sins of worry or pride that have led us into a darkness that threatens to crush us. It’s good when we trust our Savior’s promise to forgive, to heal, to help. It’s good when we rest in his all-inclusive love.
