In the fast pace of society today, it’s so easy to get burnt out!
Life pulls us in every direction! From work schedules to our social lives to our children’s activities. There is a to-do list that seems to grow ever longer!

Somedays, even just tackling our daily chores seems overwhelming. What can we do? How do we carry on and move forward?
We need to make a to-do list of items you need to accomplish that day. Some days just getting out of bed and making your bed will be a test in itself. On days that you feel motivated and perhaps your chronic pain isn’t debilitating – you could get groceries and do a few chores around the house.

Or maybe you are a professional business person, and your days are filled with many tasks. You need to make sure you pencil in time to take care of your mental health and well-being.
And looking at it from a spiritual perspective, you need to take time in the word. When you first wake up, at the very least, thank God that you awoke – that you have the privilege of seeing another day. Being alive is not a luxury afforded to everyone for various reasons.

The text says, “Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame”: this means it doesn’t just happen naturally. It means fueling up involves action from you. And “keep aflame” would imply that you need to continue to do it – it’s not a one-time deal. You need to pray daily, read the bible, listen to worship music, meditate, spend alone time with God. Whatever your way, there are many ways to choose from, to remain in Him.

There is so much in just these two verses. One post certainly isn’t enough to give it justice. Let’s touch on the 2nd half – “don’t quit in hard times, pray all the harder.”
So often, when things aren’t going the way we thought they would, or we feel disillusioned with life in general – we want to give up! It’s not fun going through hard times. Whether that may be a disease affecting you or a loved one, it may be a job loss or perhaps a sense of isolation and disconnect from others.

Don’t give up!

The most challenging part is feeling alone while going through a difficulty. Please, I beg you to reach out to someone – a friend, a pastor, a colleague, a counselor – someone who can be there for you to help you walk through the hard thing. We are not meant to solve everything on our own. Often, just knowing other people with the same issues is a blessing. Do not let shame, fear, or anxiety keep you from getting the help you need!

the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”
