Encouragement for the Weary

2-gloriousworld

Another year is drawing to a close and the year-end holiday season is upon us.  But amid all the gaiety, thanksgiving, feasting, and gift-giving many of us suffer depression and weariness.  Christian blogger David Qaoud offers five inspirational quotes for John Calvin, a sixteenth-century theologian and pastor who himself suffered physical infirmities, criticism, and heartbreak.  You can read Mr. Qaoud’s post here.

Dark though the world may seem, all can enjoy God’s salvation, love and provision.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. . .  Hebrews 3:7, 8

Wishing you all a happy and blessed holiday season!

We pray for wisdom and God sends us problems, the solution of which develops wisdom.

We plead for prosperity and God gives us brain and brawn to work.

We plead for courage and God gives us dangers to overcome.

We ask for favors–God gives us opportunities.

This is the answer.
