Spiritual fatigue is a real thing.

Sometimes I am tired. Sometimes I am uninspired. Sometimes I am worn down in this search for faith.

Sometimes I am hard on myself. Sometimes I am disappointed in others who also wear the name of Christ. Sometimes I am overwhelmed with the things I cannot change.

Lately I’ve been reaching out, mostly in prayer, seeking and trying to connect. Praying: God, show me something. Help me find you.

And the only reason I keep reaching out is Jesus. Because he can take even the smallest amount of faith, even the most tired soul and do great things. Because for some reason he doesn’t give up on me. So I’m searching. Trying to fight the fatigue.

There’s this hymn that we sing that recently stuck out to me. In the chorus it says: Only a step, only a step. Come for He bled for you and died. I think that’s my new mantra for my faith this summer, as I wade through waters of uncertainty. Because I’m not sure how much I can accomplish when I’m feeling fatigued spiritually, but I know I can handle a step. Only a step. There is grace, peace, love waiting for me. Jesus. Only a step. Just one step at a time. For truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. -Matthew 17:20 (NASB)
