Day 16: My favorite worship songs over the past year…….”Worn”

The stage of early grief is exhausting.  Physically, emotionally, every part of your being is exhausted.  At least that is what my journey has been.  The early months after the accident,  I felt I had been beat with a baseball bat.   There were days that my heart beat like a brick due to the heaviness.  And this was when I would claim the promise that his grace is sufficient to help me get through the moment. Even almost a year later, I still don’t go to bed most nights until I am so exhausted I fall into bed.  It’s getting better, but still not the way it was.  Will it ever be like it was?  Or is this part of the new normal?  Only time will tell I suppose.  And so, I too relate to this song and the promise that only Jesus can give me rest.

I think the group Tenth Avenue North in their song “Worn” express the weariness that happens on this journey called life.  So, no matter what is wearing you down in this life, may this song bring you hope!

Blessings,

Julie

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 wanna 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 wanna 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

My prayers are wearing thin
Yeah, I’m worn
Even before the day begins
Yeah, 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 wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause all that’s dead inside will be reborn

Though I’m worn
Yeah I’m worn

  1. This song is awesome as well…reminds me of the first year after Courtney was killed…always exhausted feeling so worn…I can relate to these lyrics really well. As you stated it slowly gets better but the key word is slowly.
