When you are out of choices

When you are out of choices

Have you ever had a problem that has gone on and on? It can be incredibly wearing and depressing. But imagine having the same problem for 38 years! The man at the pool of Bethesda did. He wanted to be the first to get to the stirred waters and be healed. But he never got there. And now he was out of choices. But Jesus seeks him out and offers him healing. All he has to do is to take Jesus at his word. He does, and he is healed!  That’s God’s offer – and invitation – to us too!

John 5:1-9
