Over all the weary world

Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heavenly music floats
Over all the weary world.
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever over its babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.

The world is weary on many fronts.

And if I am too weary myself, I am of no use to others. It is important that I pace myself so that I have the time to help provide a meal, a word of encouragement, or some kind of help to those in need. Some of those among us have heavier burdens to bear and it is a good thing — even a God thing, to share a burden. When I am feeling discouraged about any circumstance in my life, I don’t have to look very far to find others who are in a much, much more difficult situation.

Who is weary in your life? Do you have an opportunity to provide relief? Can you be more mindful of their situation and offer assistance, prayers, and/or encouragement in some way?

Come, Lord Jesus!

One thought on “Over all the weary world

  1. Currently there is a mix up in my pension, arghhhh, but that is minor compared to what others are experiencing currently and what I have in the past. So I try to keep in mind that there are opportunities to be out there that I need to be aware of. Possibilities to extend a kindness, now or in the future. I must keep a portion of my consciousness focused for that opportunity. And keep on dealing with daily life, balancing act!!! Am I good at that balancing act, sometimes yes sometimes no. Like you said, I have to keep myself in balance before I can help someone else. Merry Christmas! Hug and kiss those little cuties!
