Powerful I can't begin to express what a blessing this sermon was to hear. This is not just a sermon of hope for the spiritually burned-out but also for people we know who are going through such times. It is filled with deep insight into this condition which entails much more than what we think. Pastor Reed accurately describes the symptoms of burnout and more precious than that is how he goes through 1 Kings reference and applies it to those experiencing dryness and burnout. This message is genuinely a gift of grace to those who listen to this and find themselves tired, weary and worn out in every respect. It is easy to forget that there are seasons in the Christian life. We tend to think of it as always spring and summer -- full of life, victory and joy, yet forget that it also entails times of fall and winter that is dry, empty and exhausting. May we heed the wise advice that Pastor Reed provides when we find ourselves in our own spiritual winter, and let it help us know how to help those we know who are going through their winter.
Thank you Pastor Reed for such a God-sent timely and Spirit-filled message. May the Lord bless you.

Beautiful portrait of God's tender mercy So healing and comforting to anyone who suffers with depression or despair. Your description of the feelings of despair and hopeless get right to the core. No human psychology comes even close to the depth of your understanding. And the overwhelming compassion that God shows to Elijah through his angel was beyond beautiful. This sermon brought understanding, peace, comfort and healing to me during the very darkest time of my life. It also gave me a deep understanding of how deeply God so tenderly loves and cares for his children. Thank you so much, Brother Barry.

Great Sermon! Wow I don't know how many times I should say thank you. I now know depression is a sickness or condition just like cancer or high blood pressure! I now know every SINGLE
detail in this sermon showed me I'm normal and God understands. I will look to the hills which cometh my Help...which is Jesus
