The Lord God called you to repent, to weep and mourn, to shave your heads in sorrow for your sins, and to wear clothes made of sackcloth to show your remorse.  But instead, you sing and dance and play, and feast and drink. “Let us eat, drink, and be merry,” you say: “What’s the difference, for tomorrow we die.” Isaiah 22:11-13

We have experienced tedious hours of monotony, Lots of times of wastefulness. Frequent periods of cop-out, agony of repetitious failure. We have shown continuous inability to find something better. Evidence we are fatigued in a number of areas physical health, mental health, exhaustion, spiritual health is not hard to find.

It is tiring for us to keep going in circles  on the merry go to nowhere. We have been caught up in a web from which there seems to be no escape. Called upon by God to repent, and turn away from the madness, we don’t know how to, or what it means. Instead we continue in the insanity we know, continually spinning in our mental haze.

But deal with our weariness, waywardness and wretchedness is exactly what He is calling us to do. He wants to give us a new appetite and zeal for living life according to His purpose. Our character will have to change. We need to break with the past, we need to develop new attitudes and behaviours. He will not force change upon us but He promises to support us and help us if we decide to.
