What do these words have in common;

The dictionary defines the word “Weary” as a state wherein strength, power or zeal for a thing or task is drained or being drained. This occurs largely during the performance of the task or after the task is done.
One fundamental cause or reason for weariness is failure or perceived failure at frequent attempt or repetition of the task which breeds disappointment and a loss or dampened hope.

You and I might not know the how’s and when’s of God’s ways, but this one thing I know, Jesus never says a thing that he cannot do and does not mean. He has said in John 14:18; “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.”. He said “come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Hebrews 13:5 “let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said I will never leave thee nor forsake thee”
God bless you all.
