Word To The WearyOur patience is being tested — getting through the morass of getting unemployment, finding necessary items for sustenance — and so on.Actions which previously took moments or minutes, now consume time, energy, and resolve.Given our age, thanks to the wisdom of one of the kids, we buy groceries online and then pick them up. After not finding available times for pickup, I got online at midnight and an order was finally placed for Friday morning.Something as simple as buying groceries tires and wearies.Merrimam Webster defines “weary” as “having one’s patience, tolerance, or pleasure exhausted.”Sustaining ourselves in such times as now requires known abilities and resources, and reserves are developed and discovered anew every day.“The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him that is weary. Morning by morning he wakens, he wakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.“ Isaiah 50:4f.Being a word to the weary spreads a state of health and hope to the weary.
