Tell Your Heart to Beat Again

Tell your Heart to Beat Again Lyrics 
by Danny Gokey (link to song at bottom of page) 
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

As a Deer Panteth for the Water

Have this on my heart this morning.

As a deer panteth for the water so my soul longeth after You. You alone are my heart’s desire and I long to worship You. You alone are my Strength, my Shield. To You alone does my spirit yield! Psalm 42

There are times when God seems to be ignorant of our requests, and the more we pray the less we know. The “deep” of my pain calls to the “deep” of God’s mystery. We must learn to trust God because He is there, He loves us, and He will do good for us. But no answer, we ask, “Where is your God? We question further, Why are you cast down, O my soul? Lord, You allow storms, but they don’t last a lifetime. You allow me to get lost in the desert, but You also lead me beside still water. I will wait. Amen. * Prayer Bible

Lord, when we are discouraged in our souls and sad we will still worship You. Out of the depth of our pain we will still call upon You to refresh us. We will worship You from our hearts because You alone are our Strength and our Shield and to You alone may our spirits yield!! Amen!

Praying for you today!
