Everyone seems tired. Day in and day out we sleep after midnight only to wake up a few hours later. We are fatigued, not only by the lack of sleep but by the competing demands of classes, work, family, and social life.

At any hour we can find weary commuters sleeping in the buses and subway cars. When we ask how others are doing, they are always tired and overburdened with work.

Why? Why does weariness seem to be a default of our human character? Are we all attempting to do too much, or is being tired a fact of life?

Our imperfect bodies do have limitations, limitations that show us our need for God. Find rest in Him.

“Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

  1. Amen.
    I’m weary from the repetitive actions that I must perform every day. Wake up, eat, class, eat, sleep. Repeat again.
    Only Sunday do we find respite when we go to the house of our Lord and worship Him. We imperfect beings truly need Him to every aspect of our lives. When we lost sight of Him, our world becomes dark and lonely. And in that desolate world, we become weary from searching endlessly for some other meaning to our life, other than God. That weariness soon consumes us and we become zombies, slaves to the world.
    At least that’s how I see it. Do you agree or disagree? I’d like to hear what you think. 😀

    • Thank you for your thoughtful comments! I think that weariness can only consume us if we let it. If we focus on God and live life purposefully and joyfully, weariness will fall away.
