Day 28: compassion fatigue

Compassion Fatigue- fatigue, emotional distress, or apathy resulting from the constant demands of caring for others or from constant appeals from charities (

Whether you are the one getting too much or the one giving too much, there is a need for relief and restoration; there is a need for hope.

Isaiah 35:3-6 "Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, 'Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.' Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert."

When we are weak, we are no help to anyone. It's only when we allow someone greater to come in and be our strength that the very things were were striving to see, come about.
