Tired and Worn

One may go a long way after one is tired.
 
     ~ French Proverb
 
Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.
 
     ~ Philippians 2:14-16
 
First…listen to this beautiful song.
Second…allow it to minister to you and you listen again and pray it back to God.
Third…keep going in Him.  
 
Worn  fine linen has a sheen that  testifies to the journey and is a still functional, wearable garment.  Or table cloth, or napkins.  The finer, the shinier.
We get tired.  We get worn and weary.  We find rest in Jesus.  But if we never give that to Jesus, we remain burdened with it.
Give it up to the Lord who loves you.  Let Him weave healing into that linen.  Shine on for the one who loves you and understands worn better than any other.
 
Because of Him,
Linda
 
I’m Tired, I’m Worn
 
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
