There is so much going on in the news at the moment. Storms hitting the UK, the “cost-of-living crisis”, possibility of war in Ukraine, royal scandals, Downing Street parties, and the continuing coronavirus pandemic have all been the main news of the day within the last week or so. We can add to that our own problems we may be suffering, perhaps ill health, financial difficulties or damaged relationships. All this can threaten to overwhelm us at times.

However, there is a solution. Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). To those who don’t know Jesus this might seem twee or trite, yet those of us who are Christians know this is the only way to true relief and contentment. 1 Corinthians 1:18 tells us that the deliverance Jesus provides “is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” So, no matter what you’re going through, or what’s going on in the world, let’s trust Jesus to help us through.

In Christian love,
