Rest for the Weary

Where to go when you’re empty and spent.


Running on fumes is difficult. We're traveling at a decent pace when all of a sudden we sputter and eventually break down. We were warned it might happen, yet somehow we kept going, hoping we'd still reach our destination. Empty and spent, we brush ourselves off and get up. Where can we go when we're depleted? What do we need at those moments? How will God meet those needs?
