Music Monday: {The Struggle} by Tenth Avenue North

Here's a great new song by Tenth Avenue North, from their album, The Struggle.  It's a very easy song to relate to, because we can all identify with struggling.  In this life, we will have struggles.  We will have trials and tribulations.  But it's important to remember that God never promised that we wouldn't struggle.  And what a blessing to know that in those difficult times God is working, even when we don't understand, even when it doesn't seem like anything is changing for the better.  We can rest in His peace.

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33

We may be weak, fallen, and broken, but we're free! "Free to struggle, we're not struggling to be free."

There's a wreckage,
There's a fire
There's a weakness in my love
There's a hunger I can't control
Lord, I falter and I fall down
Then I hold on to the chains You broke
When You came and saved my soul
Save my soul

We are free to struggle
We're not struggling to be free
Your blood bought and
Makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing

So why, Lord, do I still fail
Do I wear thin
Why do I still give in to temptation
On my own, I am bankrupt
I don't trust You or take You at Your word
What You've promised


Hallelujah, death is overcome
And we are breathing
Hallelujah, our stone hearts become
Flesh that's beating
Hallelujah, chains have been undone
And we are singing
Hallelujah, the fire has begun
Can you feel it
