Worn

“I’m tired. I’m worn. My heart is heavy from the work it takes to just keep breathing.” These words from Tenth Avenue North are rolling around in my mind this morning.

I AM tired and worn… It’s early in the morning, and it’s allergy season, so these words fit perfectly for me at this moment. But this song is also my “go to” song when I’m just worn out with living life every day. Listen to Worn by Tenth Avenue North.

Sometimes it just gets too hard to put one foot in front of the other, to go to work one more day. Sometimes I would give anything to just go back to bed and wait until tomorrow. But I know I can’t. Like the song says, I know that You, Lord, can give me rest. I know that only God can show me that redemption wins, that the struggle ends. Only God can mend a heart that is frail and torn.

Redemption wins. Redemption WINS!!! And that thought, right there, is enough to help me “lift my eyes up” and keep at this thing called my life. To keep at the work that God has ordained for me to do. So I will go get ready for work. And I will thank God for another day of life, and for the good night’s sleep I had. For another day to serve Him in whatever way He plans for me. I have another day to love Him, to love and serve my family, to see this beautiful earth He created through fresh eyes.

See the full lyrics

I’m tired
I’m worn
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes to keep on breathing

I’ve made mistakes
I’ve let my hope fail
My soul feels crushed
By the weight of this world
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart that’s frail and torn

I want to know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause I’m worn

I know I need
To lift my eyes up
But I’m too weak
Life just won’t let up
And I know that You can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart that’s frail and torn

I want to know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause I’m worn

And my prayers are wearing thin
I’m worn even before the day begins
I’m worn I’ve lost my will to fight
I’m worn so heaven come and flood my eyes

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart that’s frail and torn

I want to know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Yes all that’s dead inside will be reborn
Though I’m worn
Yeah I’m worn
