A really good example of burnout in the Bible can be found in I Kings 19 and the story of Elijah.
I am not going to go into the details of the story - you can read that. So here are some signs of burnout.
1. We depreciate our worth. We compare ourselves to others and what we expect our lives to be.
2. We devalue our work. We blame ourselves for the results of our work. We must remember that we are only responsible for obedience.3. We exaggerate our problems. We make them bigger than they really are.
4. We abdicate our dreams. When we stop dreaming we die inside. We quit, or stop, caring or just begin to go through the routine of life.
