Exhausting Details

We all experience exhausting details throughout our lives, but for the sake of time today, I will spare you from mine!  Instead, I'm posting some powerful, renewing lyrics that I sometimes run to during the extreme moments of exhaustion.

Words that help me process the path ahead as a single mom and navigate it one step at a time, straight through the wall of those bothersome, cumbersome, tiresome details:


Worn by Tenth Avenue North

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

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

My prayers are wearing thin even before the day begins, I’ve lost my will to fight

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

Cause all that’s dead inside will be reborn

Though I’m worn


Prayers:   Crying / I Can't Even / Here's My Heart
