Mental Exhaustion: What Does the Bible Say?

We give thanks for the victories in our lives, which can only be attributed to God. We honor and glorify you for all that you do, even when we can't comprehend it all. Oftentimes, it's not one major event that leaves us feeling drained, but rather a series of small battles. Parenting, marriage, work, relationships, fear, anxiety about the future, losses, discouragement, illness, financial issues - all of these can leave us feeling defeated and exhausted. The Bible speaks of a power that is given to those who are weak and weary.

Even young people will become tired and weary, and young people will fall exhausted; but those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:29-31). If you're unsure of the exact passage you're looking for, you can always search for words online. Whether you know the source of your exhaustion or not, you can turn to the Bible for strength when you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally weak. Think back to the days when you had enough energy to socialize, clean your house, and maintain mental stamina throughout the day. Make sure to take some time throughout the day to step away from what you're doing and go for a walk, stretch, do some controlled breathing or relaxation exercises - anything to break up your routine and give yourself a mental, spiritual, and physical break from the task at hand.

The Bible should be made available to everyone in a language and format that is understandable by all so that everyone can benefit from its transformative message. All quotes from the Scriptures are taken from The Holy Bible (unless otherwise indicated).
