We become weary for a variety of reasons, and I think of weary as having a different meaning than tired. We weary of war and the constant failure of our leaders to engage in civil discourse. We become weary when toll takes the place of rest, sickness of health, and when worldly trials thicken. Changes and chance prey on our desire for solidity and comfort. But if your heart stays fixed on God, no changes or chances can touch you, and all that may befall you is they will draw you closer to God’s rest.
Whatever the present moment may bring, knowledge and faith that it is his hand we can always reach out to will make whatever happens not only tolerable but welcome.
