I feel tired. The month of October is nearing its end and I haven’t even created a new entry for my blog. There are just so many things to do. So many things I want to accomplish and 24 hours a day is not enough to finish everything!
I’m reminded once again about Hebrews 12:1-3 and lately He has been telling me to fix my eyes on Him, the author and perfecter of our faith. Because despite the physical weariness, I can’t deny as well that I am happy with what I am doing. It goes both ways – I feel tired but I know that everything that I am doing (ministry, work and other responsibilities) is motivated by my love for people and God that’s why I’m happy. And that’s what we should do most of the time when we feel tired of life. We need to refocus on Jesus, the reason for everything. So in spite of being tired you draw strength from the person who loves you the most – Jesus. And despite at times you feel that you have given up a lot of things (dreams even) for a higher cause you know that it will be worth it in the end. The race will always require your effort and energy but the prize will be worth it.
What’s the prize? I believe, it can be a lot of things. But for me, I see the prize as a life of happiness, hope, contentment and love, despite of – a life that is secured and strengthened because of Jesus.
How about you? What do you do when you feel tired of life?
