Are you tired?

Are you tired? Are you weary?

There is relief but you have to recognize some truths. First, you have to admit you are tired and weary. The first step to solving a problem is to know what the problem is. Spiritual growth requires honesty. Just admit you are weary. Second, admit you cannot solve the problem yourself. If you could solve the problem yourself, you would have already done so. Third, when we are weary and tired we need someone stronger to lean on than ourselves.

If you are tired and weary, here is Good News:

“Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak. 
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint” (Isaiah 40:28-31). – Ron Friesen
