Burnout is a danger for passionate Christian leaders. Serving God and others often means pouring yourself out. But an empty cup cannot overflow. To prevent flameout, you must refuel your faith. Make time for prayer, rest, and renewal. Connect with God's word to regain perspective and purpose. Lean on loved ones and fellow believers for support. Entrust burdens to Christ through heartfelt worship. Schedule breaks to restore body, mind, and spirit. Learn to say "no" to maintain healthy boundaries.
