“Tell Your Heart To Beat Again”

Danny Gokey, a Christian artist, wrote the most beautiful song called, “Tell Your Heart To Beat Again.”  The lyrics are so powerful and life-changing.  The lyrics are below.  Please read each line slowly so you can grasp hold of the words and the meaning 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

The song starts with a broken heart that needs to be put back together.  The past hurt caused the person to stop living in the present.  Hope is lost, and life is slowly fading away.  The heartbreak is too deep to allow the heart to beat again.  In this song, the lyrics remind us let go of our past and allow God to mend our hearts.  God is in the business of mending hearts.  He is our surgeon who put’s our broken hearts back together and makes us new again.

I love the words, “Let every heartbreak and every scar be a picture that reminds you who has carried you this far.”  God is the one who carries us through hard times.  God “heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds” (Psalm 147:3).  The scars of life helps us to never forget where we have been and where we are today.  The past will always remind us to appreciate how much we have grown in Christ, and how He made us whole again.

Later on in the song, it states to “say goodbye to where you’ve been and tell your heart to beat again.”  We must say goodbye to our past to see what’s ahead.  We have to be willing to shut the door to what’s holding us back for God to heal our heart.  I encourage you to seek God this week, and “Tell your heart to beat again.”  God wants you to live in hope and live a life filled with His promises.

He wants you to dream again.
He wants you to love again.
He wants you to believe again.

God is Our Gardener

In Jesus’ words, he says in John 15:1 that “[He is] the true grapevine, and [His] Father is the gardener.”  God, our Father, is the gardener of our lives.  He is the one who removes the impurities and teaches us how to be pure through Him.  Philippians 4:8-9 instructs us to “fix [our] thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.  Keep putting into practice all [that we have] learned and received from [Jesus]—everything [we have] heard from [Jesus] and saw [Him] doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.”  The word TRUE is in both Scriptures.  The word true is referring to God.  God is True!  He is the one who brings honor, righteousness, purity, and good into our lives. 

God is the one who plucks all the weeds out of our lives so we can produce a fruitful life.  John 15:2-4 states that God “cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.  You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you.  Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”

Gardner 3

God is part of the pruning process  of our lives.  Imagine a gardener pulling the weeds one by one from a garden.  He tugs as hard as he can to pull the root out with the weed.  He wants to make sure it cannot grow back.  God does the same thing with us.  He pulls the entire weed out of our lives so we do not return back to that sin and destruction from our past.

The gardener then proceeds to water the garden to help make it grow.  God waters our life with the Scripture Philippians 4:8.  He puts all the things of Him in us.  The pruning process may cause loss, heartache, and change, but the end result is worth every moment.  Once we start growing in Christ and becoming more like Him, we begin to bloom.  Just like flowers, we bloom into something beautiful.

This process is not just for us.  Others will see our growth and will crave the same kind of growth in them.  As flowers grow and bloom, they spread and take over other areas in the garden.  Our Spiritual growth is contagious.  People watch what we do, and how we live our lives.

We can make a difference in this world by our lifestyle.  We can live a life full of weeds and let sin take over our lives, or we can live a Godly life and look like Christ.  This week re-evaluate your life to see if your life is overgrown with weeds.  Are you making an impact in the world around you?  Do people see Christ in you?  Is your life so contagious that you are bringing others to Christ?
