Another Monday comes and I just wanna breathe
Cause it's a long,
long week for someone wired to please
I keep taking my aim, pushing it higher
Wanna shine bright, even brighter now
Wish I would tell myself

Don't try so hard
God gives you grace and you can't earn it
Don't think that you're not worth it
Because you are
He gave you His love and He's not leaving
Gave you His Son so you'd believe it
You're lovely even with your scars
Don't try so hard

Do you remember how the summers felt when we were kids
Oh we didn't think much about it,
we just lived
Taking our time,
beautiful leisure
When did we start,
trying to measure up
And all this time,
love has been trying to tell us

Don't try so hard
God gives you grace and you can't earn it
Don't think that you're not worth it
Because you are
He gave you His love and He's not leaving
Gave you His Son so you'd believe it
You're lovely even with your scars
Don't try so hard

God gives you grace
You can't earn it
Stop thinking you're not worth it
Because you are
He gave you His love and He's not leaving
Gave you His Son so you'd believe it
You're lovely even with your scars
Don't try so hard

    Love the lyrics to this song. I am always trying to be "the best" at everything I do. God is trying to remind me not to try so hard, He loves me, scars and all! Thank you, Father!

    I do remember the summers when I was young. It was a carefree world full of fun. I do think we bring too much of this world onto our shoulders when we need to focus on what is really important. It is so simple, He loves each one of us and has already accepted us. I can't wait to meet Him. Thank you Jesus!
