In recent years, burnout has become an incapacitating challenge within the Church as it stands in the way of a fruitful, fulfilling Christian life. With symptoms like exhaustion, depression, concentration issues, and a wide range of physical problems, joyfully serving the Lord seems virtually impossible.
So many of us are suffering from burnout symptoms these days, and we are eager to know how to overcome burnout once and for all. Much has been written about burnout and its recovery process, especially by psychologists and coaches. They talk about mindfulness, healing through self-care, and ways to find rest. But what does the Bible say about recovery from burnout?
Eight years ago, I suffered a major burnout myself. I tried to win the battle with psychological and physical help, only to find myself at the bottom of the pit again and again. Jesus stepped in twice to miraculously heal me, but last time He didn’t. Instead, He encouraged me to write a book about it and learn to build a staircase out of the pit on the firm foundation of the Word. And so that is what I did.
I researched the Bible for answers to questions like:
- Is burnout Biblical?
- Why do we get burned out?
- What does the Bible tell us about burnout prevention?
- What methods does the Bible provide for having victory over burnout once and for all?
Then I poured the answers to these and other questions into a book called “Overcoming Burnout through Biblical Tactics” which combines theory with practical exercises while sharing my own experiences.
Amazingly, the writing of this book became my path toward healing!
I hope and pray it will also help you and your loved ones to overcome burnout once and for all.
