We’ve been away the past four days on a ministry team visiting our sister church in Nassau, Bahamas. It was a great trip where we witnessed God encourage hearts and strengthen those who were feeling weary, including ourselves.
We are tired, but it’s the good kind of tired where you feel satisfied.
There is another kind of tired where there is no satisfaction to be found. It weighs heavily on the mind and shoulders to the point where it’s hard to get out of bed in the morning–even after a full night’s rest.
What is the answer to such weariness of the soul?
It’s the only place where we can unload our burdens to the only One who can bring help and hope.
How is your prayer life? Are you lingering in God’s presence until you feel the weight lifted? Or are you praying more on the run, all the while trying to catch your breath?
May we encourage you to take time today, bow before the Lord, cry out to Him in your distress, and let Him do what only He can do–bring rest to your soul. He loves it when we realize our great need for Him.
“Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised. It is to have a blessed home in the Lord, where I can go in and shut the door, and kneel to my Father in secret, and am at peace as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and above is trouble.”
