10 Spiritual Thoughts About How to Overcome Weariness

Jesus endured the cross and opposition from sinful men. He is our example. He did no wrong yet He had tough times to say the least. He had to endure hardship, opposition, suffering, and even death. So, don’t think hardship or weariness are surprising, strange, or antithetical to Christian living. Right up front we need to know that following Christ means we will encounter difficulty, just as He did. So, the issue isn’t that you face it, the issue is understanding its value and how to respond to it.
