Psalm 119:25 (GNT) I lie defeated in the dust; revive me, as you have promised. 26 I confessed all I have done, and you answered me; teach me your ways. 27 Help me to understand your laws, and I will meditate on your wonderful teachings.[a]28 I am overcome by sorrow; strengthen me, as you have promised. 29 Keep me from going the wrong way, and in your goodness teach me your law. 30 I have chosen to be obedient; I have paid attention to your judgments. 31 I have followed your instructions, Lord; don’t let me be put to shame.32 I will eagerly obey your commands, because you will give me more understanding.
During my fifty years of life on this planet, I have traveled through several seasons of life where only one word can be used to describe my state of being: Worn. There comes a time when we just need to be replenished, and refreshed to handle the challenges of life. Have you experienced this worn out season in your life?
The last time I felt that way passed by just a few days ago. Nothing catastrophic was bombarding my world. I wasn’t sick or clinically depressed. I was simply exhausted by an army of everyday burdens that seemed to have banded together with the mission of taking me down. Have you been there? I’m guessing you have been.
When the culture we live in is constantly influencing you away from the Lord, conflicting priorities, information overload. Maintaining our focus on the Lord is thrown smack-dab into a broken, hurt-filled world; populations of worn people become as much a fact of life as sunshine and rain. I have discovered the Word of the Lord is significant when my spirit needs refreshing and having some wholesome relationships in my life: family, friends, covenant brothers and sisters. I am not certain where you are in your spirit but if you are worn? I believe today’s message will be useful to your life either now, or the days ahead.
