Worn out by the Demands of the Season?

Advent – Season of Hope

I am so weary from the constant demands that life places on me–demands that never stop, just change. I am tired from household tasks, from endless clutter, from expectations for the picture perfect Christmas!

I am weary with my job, and in my weariness I am overlooking so many details. Constant complaints wear me down.

I am weary with everything but you, Lord. Somehow you give me the strength to go on despite my weariness. You breathe new life into me and give me courage to face another day.

When I am weary with my Christmas preparations, let me remember what Advent–what Christmas–is all about.

For the yoke that burdened them, the pole on their shoulder, and the rod of their taskmaster you have smashed, as on the day of Midian.   Isaiah 9:3
