Burned Out🤦🏾‍♂️?

One reason we have a tendency to burn out is because we allow crap to pile up in our lives. We become emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually exhausted. Exhaustion can lead to depression and different kinds of spiritual warfare. Prophet Elijah experienced this type of burn out in I Kings 18-19. At the height of his ministry, confirmed by many miracles, he felt so hopeless that life no longer made sense to him. He told God he wanted to die and he laid down under a tree and went to sleep. However, as referenced in the scripture above, an angel woke him up and told him it was time to eat and get moving. Remember the lady with an issue of blood mentioned in Luke 8:43-48? Sometimes we have press to our breakthrough and other times when the burden is insurmountable God wants us to simple surrender it all to Him (I Peter 5:7). If you feel depressed and don’t have the will to go on, look up. Talk to your Creator, the God of the universe. Tell Him everything – all of your fears, your anger, and why you want to give up. Not only will He understand, He can restore you and over time give you a way to get through it. It begins with trusting Him day by day. Remember, He doesn’t give us strength for tomorrow, today. He gives us strength for tomorrow, tomorrow! Don’t quit! Take things one day at a time.
