Are you exhausted?

Sep 14, 2023Shawn Green

How are you today? I bet if you were honest, you’d probably say, “I’m exhausted.”


Hi, I’m Shawn from Sherwood Oaks ChrisAan Church with today’s Minute Message.


Low-grade exhaustion seems to be the new normal for most of us. I talk to people all the time who are physically exhausted. They’re living at a pace that’s impossible to maintain. They’re emotionally exhausted from carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. They’re mentally exhausted. Their minds never stop racing and it keeps them up at night, which only makes them even more physically exhausted. And the cycle goes on and on. Sound familiar?


Everything in our life and culture is shouting, “Go faster! Do more!” We live at an unsustainable pace and our world calls it normal.


But while our culture shouts, “Go!”, the God who loves you whispers, “Stop.” He invites you to stop running and rest in Him. Feeling exhausted today? Turn to Jesus who promises to give rest to your weary soul.
