Book is New but Autographed to someone else. Paperback.
Weary. The Greek translation is kopiao which means to engage in hard work and implies difficulties or trouble. Figuratively speaking it's becoming emotionally fatigued or discouraged and being on the verge of losing heart or giving up. Weariness comes when troubles drain us of our physical, mental, and spiritual vitality. To recharge, we frequently try everything but what God tells us to do without fully embracing what it means to rest in Jesus Christ. In Come To Me, God's Call to the Weary, C.J. Owit discusses life's woes and how to get out of its maze of strife. Addressing the general causes of weariness rather than any one specific cause, Owit underscores God’s approach to this issue found in Matthew 11:27-30, and examines how our faith and doubt affect our ability to overcome it. It's a personal testimony of his own battle with weariness as Owit chronicles losing his way in secular and spiritual struggles, beginning as a young boy growing up in a Christian home. He questioned God’s love after experiencing the untimely and debilitating deaths of loved ones. He faced inner and outer chaos rather than experiencing peace. After seething in commotion and sorrow, he became disillusioned with God. In sharing how he got to a point of weariness, Owit also shares how he got out, and how you can too. If tragedies and other troublesome circumstances have your life in an uproar, Jesus offers an indescribable peace. Because even under life's heavy burdens, fears, sorrows, disappointments, and demands, you can find rest! It simply depends on where you go to find it.
