17. When your soul is exhausted

The way this guy can recall scripture always blows my mind. Curtis Zachary, or CZ as most know him, shares about a time he was utterly exhausted all in the name of working for God and the journey he went on to discover what true rest for our souls can actually look like.

 In this episode, we discuss:

  • How exhaustion is a man-made problem, with a God-created solution
  • How the message of rest is woven throughout the entire Bible
  • How God cares more about your ability to connect with Him, than your ability to do good works for Him
  • How to get to a place where our works is an overflow of our connection to God, not from our own strength
  • How to discover and remove our personal barriers to intimacy with God
  • And so much more

Scripture Mentioned:

  • Genesis 2:2-3
  • Exodus 31:17
  • Exodus 20:8
  • Hebrews 12:1-2
  • Psalm 13
  • Matt 11:28-30

Lament is a gift, given to us by God, to bring our full selves before God without resolution. (When I lament I’m saying God I’m broken, I’m lost. I don’t know where You are. I feel dry, I feel tired, and unless you show up this is not going to work.) -Curtis Zackery

We are deficient. We are empty. We are nothing. We are dead… a part from communion with God. -Curtis Zackery
