Friday Finds | Feeling Worn?

Five years ago, this coming August, I (Jody) quit my day job working for Provident Label Group and took the dive to focus fully on photography with Zach. Before I left the company, the label signed a band called Tenth Avenue North and I had the pleasure of getting to know the guys, specifically the lead singer, Mike and his wife Kelly.  Mike and Kelly both, have such a heart for people and if you ever get the chance to hear Tenth Av. play and speak – do it.  You’ll be changed.

Today, in our Friday Finds blog, we want to share with you their latest music video, “Worn.”  This video captures how we often feel, not just in being small business owners, but sometimes just with LIFE in general.

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 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

It is encouraging to know that we have hope and redemption through Christ and all is not lost and we’re not doing this along.

Enjoy the video…
