Worn ~ God Can Restore Those Broken

In every difficulty of my life, God brings me a song that ministers to me and helps me through.  These songs are not ones that I hear in passing and then forget.  These special ones linger in my spirit and speak directly to whatever issue is pressing into my life.

It is as if God orchestrates the song by causing it to cross my path just when needed most.

Most recently, my song is one by Tenth Avenue North called Worn.  The premise of the song is that God can raise us up, and bring back a song in a life broken and worn.

In varying ways, we have all messed up.  For many, life has dealt hard blows.  As a result, we can end up flat-out in the dust.  The truth is that none of us is without sin and struggles; we are all in need of God’s mercy and help in lifting us up out of the ashes.

Someone I love is struggling.  When he hurts, so do I.  When he fails, I can relate because I have, too.  Yet, God’s promise to me in this song is that He is going to do a restoring work.  I will not give up hope.  He can mend a heart that’s frail and torn.  A song can rise from ashes of a broken life

*the official video with the song is great*

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
Pre-chorus:
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Chorus:
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 ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause i’m worn

Verse two:
I know I need to lift my eyes up
But I’m to weak
Life just won’t let up
Pre-chorus
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Chorus:
Oh 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

Bridge:
My prayers are wearing thin
Ya I’m worn
Even before the day begins
Ya I’m worn
I’ve lost my will to fight
I’m worn
So heaven come and flood my eyes

Final Chorus:
Let me see redemption wins
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
Ya I’m worn

What is a song God has given you recently that has ministered to you?
