Help for a Weary, Tired, and Stressed life

Taking time with friends is one way to be refreshed and energized. When my daughter went to get her ears pierced we made it a ladies night. The Grandmas and Aunt all joined in on the fun. That night was not just a fun evening out but full of fellowship and encouragement. We are all in a different place and season of our lives but God brought us together to love and care for one another. In John 13:34 God commands us  “That ye love one another; as I have loved you.” It was a priceless night. Sharing laughter and encouragement with friends is uplifting.

There are many times in life when we have something weighing on our hearts and cannot have a night out with friends.  There is a friend that is always with us. During the fun times and the hard times. Three times in Psalm 46 it is written “God is our refuge.”  Verse one says “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” It does not end there. It continues in verse seven and eleven “The Lord of host is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. ”

Are you weary, overdone, and need refreshing. Jesus was tempted, tired and hungry. He understands our struggles and will not leave us alone. Jesus faced many times of sorrow and pain. In Luke 22:44 we see Jesus “being in an agony he prayed more earnestly.” Seeking God’s counsel was a help for him to carry on.

To refresh your weary life go to the Lord in prayer and let him help you. When you have the opprotunity spend time with godly friends who will encourage you through God’s word and pray for you.
