5 Quick Thoughts for the Weary

weary

In the midst of another long week? Here are 5 quick thoughts to consider when you are weary–

1. God delights to use dust.

“God loves to take the dust of our shattered places and do something miraculous with it.” –Lysa TerKeurst, Proverbs 31 Ministries

2. God desires to draw you close.

“Stay close to the heart of the Father; that is what the world needs most from you.” –Jedd Medefind, author and president of Christian Alliance for Orphans

3. God loves you perfectly.

“Christ’s love compels us. It is inexhaustible.” –Steven Curtis Chapman, singer, song writer, and founder of Show Hope

4. God is enough. 

“Do not make yourself the center of your story. Let others see Jesus at the center.” — Peter Greer, president and CEO of HOPE International

5. God gives grace.

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” –2 Corinthians 12:9

The thoughts from this post were collected at CAFO2017. Make plans to join us next year at CAFO2018 in Dallas!
