1. “Unraveling” by Cory Asbury
Slide 1 of 6
I'm coming apart at the seams
And everyone's pulling at me
And I am unraveling
The smile isn't quite what it seems
But it does well to hide what's beneath
All the pressure is staggering
When life seems uncertain, depression can feel staggering and hindering to our faith. We feel as if we've come undone, and no matter what we do, our walk in this world is crippling. Yet even when our world is falling apart, Christ is in the business of pulling everything together.
Know this, the God of the Universe, both heaven and earth, sees and controls all. Even when life may be figuratively unraveling like a ball of yarn falling from the seams, or crumbling at your fingertips, hold on tightly to Him.
Joshua 2:11b praises, "The Lord your God is God in heaven above and on earth below." He sees every loose end and is sure to sew it up because He's sewing into you.

2. “Worn” by Tenth Avenue North
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes to keep on breathing
Feeling worn, ragged, tired, and old is something most of us have thought about at some period in our lives. I believe the age-old question of 2020, for instance, has been, "Why am I so tired all of the time?" At the core of our exhaustion is a weak and weary soul in need of a peace that only the Father can give.
Philippians 4:6-7 declares, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Our Heavenly Father knows every anxious thought, and though our hearts are heavy, He will give us rest when we come to Him (Matthew 11:28).
