Are you Tired…

aren’t you tired yet?

And it’s a question we need to wrestle with every day.

Are you tired yet?

Tired of always trying to look like the smartest person in the room?

Tired of always having to be right?

Tired of always trying to get the last word?

Tired of always trying to be in control?

Tired of always trying to be the center of attention?

Tired of judging other people and throwing shadows on their accomplishments?

Tired of always trying to look like a hero?

Tired of trying to be as good as good can be to impress God, even though God has already made it abundantly clear that there’s nothing you can do to make him love you more?

When we’re tired of being tired, there’s hope we will finally listen to someone beyond ourselves.

“Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest,” Jesus says in Matthew 11:28.

When we’re tired of being tired, trusting him is our best hope of sleeping well tonight.
