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 so 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

Infidelity

You Know

   You know what happens when you cheat on someone ?  It cuts them from the inside out.  It breaks everything they ever knew about you.  It causes a pain too extraordinary for words.  

   You know what happens when you cheat with someone else’s spouse?  It destroys them.  It ignites feelings they never even knew they had.  It causes them to lose faith in people.  And if you call yourself a Christian, it causes them to lose faith in church too.  

    You know, when you start ranting about falling in love with the wrong person and how it’s destiny and meant to be it makes them want to punch you in the face.  When you compare your few months to their years it’s unbelievable that anyone can be that stupid.

   There are things in this world that are sacred.  They have to be or else what the hell are we doing?  No respect, no rules, no boundaries.  Where is the peace?  Where is the safety?

  It causes them to hate and distrust and then feel bad that they hate and distrust.  The energy that goes into not giving into bitterness and depression is probably more effort than it took you to sneak around.  And it lasts a lot longer than any truth lasted in your time together.  

   Maybe it’s just me.

Weak Things

“Say your weak things in a strong voice.”

-Carrie Fisher

I love that.  And I truly believe that.  I’ve always been honest about myself and my life.  A lot of people don’t like that.  I try not to whine or complain or be negative.  I just believe everyone has a story and maybe their story can help someone else.

I’ve lost a lot of friends. I know people have I unfriended me and stopped following me on Facebook because I talk about my husband’s affair once in awhile, OCD, fibromyalgia, Jesus.  That’s okay.  It hurts a little sometimes but not much.  I’ve never been popular, at least now I’m not popular because I’m screaming about my weaknesses and His truth.  I can live with that.

Wisdom

Wisdom can be described as making the best use of knowledge, experience, and understanding, and according to Proverbs 5:1, it has been learned by actual and costly experience. So let’s be those women (or men) who are willing to open our mouths with wisdom. Not opinion, but wisdom. (Holly Wagner)
