When you were learning what it meant to follow Jesus as His disciple did anyone talk to you about the reality of burnout? Were you encouraged or taught to lead in a way that prevents burnout so you can do what you’re called to do for the long haul? Burnout is prevalent but it is also preventable.
...this is a subject typically avoided, especially in conversations around our Christian vocation and the life of the church. In today’s episode, I am going to share with you the things no one told me about burnout so you can live and lead with a greater awareness of this all too common threat.
"Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose the interest and motivation that led you to take on a certain role in the first place.”
"A right application of scripture does not lead to burnout."
