    I find these encouragements to be useful and have been employing them for some time. They are a good starting point. However, I think it would have been fruitful to have mentioned that if exhaustion and chronic fatigue continue, it would be wise to consult the expert advise of a Naturopath or physician as well as a trained Christian psychotherapist or counselor to help one figure out if there are deeper underlying medical or emotional-spiritual causes for ones persistent fatigue.

    I know that these resources have been invaluable to me as I have been fighting my own battle with adrenal fatigue. Probably the most significant breakthrough for me was when I was able to identify that it was the dischord in my marriage that was the deepest source of my depression and exhaustion. Simply praying and being the faithful-wife was not enough. I needed to take action steps to make things different rather than continuing to be an ongoing living sacrifice. For me that meant signing my husband and I up for a Retrouvaille weekend. This is a Catholic-Christian ministry that is biblicaly based and open to those of all faiths, however Jesus Christ is the one proclaimed as the source of salvation and healing. Retrouvaille teaches spouses how to reconnect and build their trust and respect for one another so that they can communicate on the deepest levels of intimacy that God had called us to experience.

    Having found the source of my fatigue through counseling and then taking action steps guided by prayer has given me a new source of encouragement. Now that my husband and I are working on our marriage actively together through Retrouvaille I am finding new strength, hope, excitement and energy. Once i started making progress in the area that was the deepest source of my distress, I finding that the nutritional supplementation is having a far more beneficial impact.

    Prayer and rest are necessary but finding the source of ones depletion is also vitally necessary or else one will remain a leaky vessel unable to hold the valuable treasure that God longs to pour into our lives. Let us all repair our earthen vessels that we might be able to contain the fullness of the Glory of God and that we may be full to the brim and overflowing with living water.
