Two books I’ve found helpful when I’m struggling with burn-out and wanting to quit is Ordering Your Private World and also Zeal Without Burnout. The latter is especially helpful for ministry families.
Be blessed today, friend. Let me know how I can best pray for you!
These verses are such a blessing! Thank you for sharing them. I have written all of them down on note cards to read over and over again and hopefully memorize. These verses have special meaning for me because I did give up 2 years ago, but God is faithful. I survived and am now thriving by the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ. I have followed your blog for years and have been deeply encouraged by you. Thank you for sharing the REFRESHING Word of Jesus Christ on your blog. May you be blessed by the Lord in all that you do!
Oh, Rebecca! How encouraging! I’m glad it was a blessing to you — you have blessed me today! Thank you!

Hi, and thank you for sharing the beautiful scriptures! I am looking for inspiration as my family is going through a rough period at the moment and I find strength in scripture, It helps keep my eyes on our Lord and Savior reminding me he is in control of our Lives and through our troubles we need to have faith that he uses them for our Good! Ive been looking into study and prayer groups as another resource! I feel he chooses then brings his children together to share his wisdom and to comfort one another as believers many of us have went through similar struggles and have overcome them braver and stronger than before! sharing gives hope and reminds others to push through keeping our eyes steadfast!! please keep my family in your prayers. thank you again God Bless for sharing
