Have you ever felt this way? To me, it's a scary place to be. So tired - weary is the word I would choose. Depression makes it feel like the place you are today is the place you will always be. Words of hope can be offered, but they often fall flat.
Where can we find rest when we're this kind of tired?
I have only found rest for my weariness in the knowledge of God's love. I have experienced this love through people, through songs, through nature, and through prayer.
It is hard to rest because it requires trust.
If I am resting, who is taking care of everything?
And in this question my heart and the source of my weariness is revealed. God does not need me as his overseer and advisor. He is loving and He is good. He will take care of me today. He will take care of you too. He can handle the weight of it all. I cannot, and thus I am weary.
What are you carrying today? Are they your burdens to carry? What would it look like to be quieted by His love, even if just for a moment? Quiet your busy, hurting heart and let His love wash over you today. Lay your burdens at His feet and find rest for your weary soul.
