And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
What does weary mean?
It is feeling or showing tiredness, especially as a result of excessive exertion or lack of sleep.
To be truthful, we are weary. We have been for awhile. It was just a feeling to begin but now it feels like we are showing weariness. It feels like a thick winter coat on a hot summer day. It feels like the last 100m of a 400m race for those who have run track. We have definitely lost hours and nights of sleep. It is hard to smile. It is hard to role out of bed some days. Thankfully, we have a toddler who loves to be outside.
So what are we to do when we become weary?
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
We definitely aren’t giving up. We are praying for a breakthrough. Letters have been hand delivered to immigration. We are praying for a response very soon and a final answer shortly after that.
We definitely are in need to “find rest for our souls.” The only place to turn is to the Lord. He says to “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” But it definitely helps when we receive those emails, texts, Bible verses, and so many prayers. Thank you!!!
On my Bible App, today’s verse was “The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Exodus 14:14. This was one of the verses that God gave me when we sat in South Africa in 2015 waiting to enter Namibia for the first time. It was God’s little reminder that He is fighting for us. So today I can rest in Him and be still and silent knowing He is God, sovereign over all things.
