"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."--Romans 12:2 (KJV)

Thanks for reading!

I have never felt more weary and battle-scarred. I’m dealing with multiple long-term challenges. Some of them are absolutely devastating. I must take each day one step at a time.

I know I’m not alone.

Many of us are soooo tired. We want to stop the merry-go-round of life and curl up in a comfortable ball on our bed. “Please, stop the world for just a minute!” is our motto.

Time doesn’t stop for anyone. We have to find a different solution for weariness. This writing is a collection of practical ideas from three different articles.

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."--Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
  • Spend time in prayer. Find solitude.
  • Don’t isolate yourself. Stay connected.
  • Refocus. (Proverbs 3:6)
  • Take care of yourself. (Romans 12:2)
  • Think on good things. (Isaiah 53:4 and Philippians 4:8)

The table below is based on the traits listed in Philippians 4:8:
Just (Moral and fair)
of good report (Uplifting)

"He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength."--Isaiah 40:29 (KJV)

Go to Jesus. Ask him for rest, joy, and restoration. Confess your weariness to Him.

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."--Matthew 11:28 (KJV)
  • Don’t do unnecessary things. (Prioritize.)
  • Seek revitalization instead of numbness.
  • Know what brings you joy. (Keep a list of your blessings handy.)

My Conclusion

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”-- Galatians 6:9 (KJV) (italics added)

“Before you can change your thinking, you have to change what goes into your mind.”—Zig Ziglar
“The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.”—Marcus Aurelius

Are you willing to push through weariness? Do you have hope for an eventual victory?
