Have you ever felt heavy hearted? Tired? Oppressed? Weary?
If you have ever felt this way, then you know how hard it can be; if you are feeling this way now, you're not alone.
The things of this world can be draining; work, school, responsibilities, hardships, heartbreak, trials, and difficult times, living in this world is not an easy thing to do. But the Bible says that we were not made for this world. This is just our temporary home.
So if you have never have felt weary-hearted before, know that one day it will come because of the sin fallen world that we live in. Whether you have felt this way or not, here are 11 Bible verses that will help get you through it.

10. Revelation 21:3-4

11. Psalm 147:3
"God heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."
This verse particularly has been one that has helped me through a lot of trials that I have faced. It's something that I cling to knowing that God will heal my heart. It may take time, but He is in control in my life.
The world that we live in is sin fallen and imperfect. We are going to face trials and tribulations, but it also gives us a megaphone to share our faith with others. So if you're feeling burnt out, weary, tired, and down, turn it all over to God. Surrender everything to Him, and give Him control over it. Stop worrying and let Him take care of it.
As you enter this week, I encourage you to pray to Him that He gives you the strength to push through whatever you are facing. Know that it is only for a season and that God will use the bad things that we face for our good.
Trust in and talk to Him.
