How can I recover from feeling exhausted and serve with longevity?

[#19 Q8] I am serving full-time in a locality in Europe and I have a young family. There are so many demands and it’s hard to know where to focus, especially because everything seems important and urgent all at the same time. The result is that my service is just putting out fires. I feel exhausted and worn out. I find myself in meetings where the saints are looking to me for some encouragement or supplying word or just to be there as a pattern of one who is enjoying Christ, but instead I feel defeated and out of touch with the Lord. I can’t remember the last time I had a good time with the Lord in the morning. How can I recover and serve with longevity?

In Question and Response (Q&R) sessions, a group of invited panelists respond to questions submitted by students and young adults during the week. The panelists are generally older and more experienced brothers in the Lord who have the burden to respond to our questions by sharing both the truth from the Bible and their experiences in life.

It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.

“That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.”

-1 John 1:3
