I’m Tired!

What a week that was, huh?  Not only are many of us physically tired from getting everything back to normal, but we are also mentally tired from the stress of being without power, being without water, trying to find a plumber, and trying to find money to pay the plumber.  Now this week the tired continues because on top of still fixing up what broke last week we have to get back to our normal work routines too.

I am encouraged today by 2 Corinthians 13:11, “Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.”

When we are tired it is easy for us to retreat and isolate from others but this is the time when we need each other most.  The God of love and peace is here with all of us so let’s encourage one another, let’s remind each other that God is here, and let’s share his love and peace with each other.

“Pastor, I’m too tired to share love and peace today.”  That’s fine.  Then you need to let the rest of the church share love and peace with you, to remind you that God is still here, to encourage you through this season.

Let’s all strive for full restoration, not only of our homes, but also of our world.  Let’s strive to restore those who are feeling tired.  Let’s strive to restore those who are feeling hopeless.  Let’s strive to restore those who are living in the consequences of sin.  Let’s restore God’s kingdom here on earth so that the gospel—the good news about Jesus Christ—might change us all.
