BI-WEEKLY MEN'S DEVOTIONAL
WHEN WE FEEL BURNT OUT
READ: Matthew 11:28-30
WHAT EMOTIONS COME TO MIND when you hear the words burden and burnout? These terms make us sigh, don't they? In this fast paced, overworked world, most of us have felt the tiring numbness of carrying too much on our shoulders, in our schedules, and on our minds. Here are three ways a Christian should respond to these feelings.
SURRENDER TO CHRIST. Jesus said to come to Him. There is peaceful rest in surrendering our load to the Lord. His hands are large enough to hold anything and everything we need Him to handle. If we try to control and manage everything, we will wear ourselves out and eventually start dropping it all.

[Bi-Weekly Devotional Continued]
DEPEND ON CHRIST. Jesus invites us to take His yoke and let Him bear our burdens. Although at first we may readily relinquish our concerns to the Lord, after a while we may try to take our burden back in an attempt to fix things ourselves. But by doing this, we interfere with the solution God wants to bring, and we end up wearing ourselves out once again. The truth is that only God has both the power and perspective to bring all matters to their proper conclusion [Romans 8:28]
TRUST CHRIST The Savior encourages us to learn from Him. As we fill our minds with the truth of His words, our trust in Him grows. His yoke will become easy, and we'll see it as the safest and happiest place to be. When we know we never have to carry burdens alone, they get lighter.
What do you have to lose by coming to Jesus, taking His yoke, and learning from Him? Nothing but your burdens of exhaustion, stress, and anxiety.
Spend some time searching Scripture for verses relating to giving Jesus your burdens and concerns. Ask the Word questions as to waiting on the answers we are looking for. Let the Holy Spirit show you how patience makes it all more rewarding.
