Default Current sensing circuit

Hi there.

i am working on an electronics project and i am trying to figure out a current-sensing circuit for the same. the purpose of the circuit is to detect overloading condition of a lift. can someone provide ideas on how to achieve a current-sensing circuit? the lift is driven by a +5 V dc gear motor. what are the components for design? do i need to know the rated current of the motor?

can i accomplish this using a load cell?

will be grateful for any replies.
