Jesus said that his yoke is easy and his burden is light. Yet when you talk to most Christians they'll tell you life is very heavy and hard. So many are dealing with burnout and depression, even those in ministry. This doesn't line up with what Jesus promises, so something's wrong with this picture. Burnout is a symptom that we are doing things in our own strength instead of relying on the Holy Spirit and His direction. If you feel burned out today, talk with God about it. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you where you need to make adjustments to lighten your load and get back to your place of productive rest. If you let Him, the Holy Spirit burns out burnout.
He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, from within him will flow rivers of living water.— John 7:38 (WEB)
