Burnout - View from the cutting edge

After my last podcast, “Burnout in Ministry and Missions, What Happened to the YWAM Podcast?“, I was asked some follow up questions about my personal experience with burnout.

I would love to hear, how was your process of realizing you were burnt out and how you came out of it. What kind of changes you had to do…

Signs of Burnout:

  • The Accidental MissionaryHopelessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Decision making is hard
  • Irritability
  • Lowered activity levels
  • Aches and pains

The promise of God strengthening us is true, but it happens when we walk in His will.

Philippians 4:13  – I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

What advice do you have for someone who is wondering if they are suffering from burnout or who is trying to recover from burnout?

    I had a tweet come through a few days ago in which someone — don’t remember who — basically said that if you are spiritual enough you won’t be hit by burnout. … Some people seem to forget that God created us as humans with human weaknesses as well as spiritual beings.

  2. radioal I have heard people say that if you are spiritual enough you won’t be hit by burnout before going through it myself hearing people say that is something that I find really hard. It’s difficult not to feel guilty that I have somehow “failed” because of my weakness and lack of spiritual strength, comments like that make it even more difficult …

    Really appreciate your honesty here: I am a firm believer in self-disclosure as one of the ways we grow in the context of safe and honest relationships. Trusting with you for wisdom, health and close relationships.
