“Then he went up and touched the bier, and the men who were carrying it stopped. He said, ‘Young man, I say to you, get up!’ The man who had been dead sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him back to his mother” (Luke 7:11-15).
Jesus entered the city of Nain.
He saw a mommy in great pain.
Jesus heard her crying so loud,
He heard her without a doubt.
Her only son she loved so much,
Had left everyone in such a hush.
There were no words to say,
Because she couldn’t see him.
He was gone in such a rush.
Jesus saw her so sad,
It made Him feel bad.
Her forever sleeping son and said,
“Wake up please.”
Her sleeping son immediately
Woke up and started talking!
Jesus gave the mother back her son.
She was so happy that Jesus
Had woken her son up!
She was happy Jesus came to her city
Called Nain and stopped her pain.
What do you want Jesus to give back to you?
This story is found in Luke 7. In this chapter we learn that Jesus traveled to Nain from Capernaum–a distance of 22 miles!
