Hope for the Weary

Are you tired of hoping circumstances will get better? Want Ole Corona Covid -19 to go away?  Wish your kids would get a grip and get off drugs? Are you exhausted from job hunting? Maybe you're bone weary as you endure a sour relationship.

Don't you wish you had someone to turn to? 

Friends will help. They may offer a phrase that hits the spot and makes you feel better. 

Reading your Bible is a great comfort. When you are weary, look up the word or related words in the concordance and see what the Word says about exhaustion and weariness.

Elijah, with God's help, performed mighty miracles, but afterward, he was worn out. He feared for his life and ran until he could run no more. He prostrated himself under a tree and asked God to let him die.

An angel came along and said, "here old boy, eat this and take a nap."

In other words, God knew he needed physical, mental and emotional rest. Food and sleep made him feel better and his hope returned.

Hope and faith are the glues that keep us together. We must not give them up. Never give them up!  

Eat and rest. It's good for you. Think of your blessings. That helps too.

Always remind yourself there's a better day coming.

Hope is faith on steroids.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what de do not see. Heb: 11:1 NIV.
