Benefits of being spiritually healthy: Fewer aches & illnesses: “But David found strength in the Lord his God.” (1 Sam 30:6). There are many aches and illnesses that occur as symptoms to stress and compassion fatigue. But when we cast our anxiety, fears, stress, fatigue, and depression on God and go forth in the strength of God, we will experience less symptoms associated with these negative emotions.
Burnout and compassion fatigue not only carries a cost on those it attacks, but it also has a higher cost on the people around those who suffer from it. For them, it could be an eternal cost.
