Just Plain Weary

Description unavailable

There are days when I am beyond tired.

I’m not just sleepy. I don’t need a nap.

My spirit is sagging. I am worn down and run ragged.

The race is long and the finish line is no where in sight.

I’m about to give up… or give in.

I am soul weary.

My weariness drives me to the only One who can give me the rest that I yearn for.

The One whose words are true.

The One who walks with me…and on days when I am too weary to walk on my own,

carries me.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. —– My shelter.

Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. —   My renewal.

John 14:27  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. — My peace.

  1. Amen. Yesterday I happened to see a book title about “The Worn Out Woman.” I didn’t pick it up, but I think many of us can relate to the idea.

  2. I can relate. I’ve been bone weary for the last few days. God has been my sustenance . . . not coffee, not chocolate, not the promise of sleep . . . God.
