Dear God, My Heart is Broken

Tell Your heart to Beat Again

Dear God, my heart is broken

shattered, seemingly beyond repair. Each morning I awake I feel the ache. Will the pain ever go away? Your Word promises that if I call on your name, you’ll save me. Dear Jesus, I’m calling on you now, please heal my heart, and fill me with hope once again. Amen 

Years ago, this was my prayer. I’ll never forget those dark days . . . and nights. I’ll also never forget the sweet calm after the storm, the healing, and the closeness I felt to Jesus throughout that season.

“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” Psalm 34:18

If you’ve ever felt “shattered” by life’s circumstances, you’ll relate to this song by Danny Gokey—Tell Your Heart To beat Again. Close your eyes, listen to the words . . . let God wrap His loving arms around you. No heart is broken beyond repair.  My favorite lines from the song say,

“Say goodbye to where you’ve been, and  tell your heart to beat again . . .

Leave the darkness, feel the sun
‘Cause your story’s far from over
And your journey’s just begun!”

Lyrics

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
