Tell Your Heart To Beat Again

Begin Again

2015 is about to end.  So many emotions come to surface as I reflect on the past 12 months.  It was, indeed, a roller coaster ride – emotionally and spiritually.  There were times of depression and bitterness. There were times of spiritual testing and emptiness.  But there were also times of joy, peace, comfort and hope.

God is truly faithful, even if and especially when I was faithless and unfaithful. And because of His unfailing love, I choose to be thankful rather than dwell on all the “what could have beens.”

This morning, as I sat and poured out my heart to Him, He brings this song to me  by Danny Gokey entitled, Tell Your Heart To Beat Again.  The lyrics sprang to life and spoke to my heart to remind me to keep trusting, to keep hoping, to keep surrendering.  After all, HE is our heart’s beat.

Danny Gokey says,

“I dedicate this song to all those who need 2016 to be a better year than the years before. Disappointments, past failures and broken relationships may have left you feeling hopelessly stuck, but God has a plan for your life in spite of it all. Allow God in the dark hidden parts of your heart to heal past wounds so you don’t have to walk with a limp anymore. Let Him remove the pain of the past once and for all. Come in agreement with your Heavenly Father and tell your heart to beat again, to hope again, to dream again and to believe again. It’s time for you to get back up again because it’s never too late to become all that God has destined you to be.”

Here are the lyrics of the song:

You’re shattered
Like you’ve never been before
The life you knew
In a thousand pieces on the floor
And words fall short in times like these
When this world drives you to your knees
You think you’re never gonna get back
To the you that used to be

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday’s a closing door
You don’t live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you’ve been
And tell your heart to beat again

Beginning
Just let that word wash over you
It’s alright now
Love’s healing hands have pulled you through
So get back up, take step one
Leave the darkness, feel the sun
Cause your story’s far from over
And your journey’s just begun

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday’s a closing door
You don’t live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you’ve been
And tell your heart to beat again

Let every heartbreak
And every scar
Be a picture that reminds you
Who has carried you this far
‘Cause love sees farther than you ever could
In this moment heaven’s working
Everything for your good

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday’s a closing door
You don’t live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you’ve been
And tell your heart to beat again
Your heart to beat again
Beat again

Oh, so tell your heart to beat again
