No words can better describe the brokenness that many feel in their lives than the lyrics to this song.  “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” was written by Danny Gokey after the tragic loss of his wife. And just like in this song, in our own pain and suffering, when we feel shattered and broken, God will use all that we go through to make something beautiful. He will take all the broken pieces of our lives and make it new… we just have to give Him all the pieces and trust him with our futures. 

“Tell Your Heart To Beat Again”

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

  3. Danny Gokey is an amazing musician…I just recently found a “new” artist David Dunn, his new album Yellow Ballons is amazing. The lyrics of his songs hit home deeply. Even my 4 year old was in the car with tears in his eyes listening to his song “Open arms” His song “I don’t have to worry” has powerful lyrics in it as well…I love all the songs.
    FYI I’m switching my name and blog over from Dignity and Strength to Joyful Inspirations…I shut my other site down to private (I think you still have access to it, very few do). ❤ Thank you for being you. I hope you are having a wonderful morning ❤

    • Awe… Thank you for letting me know about this new artist and about your blog. I am so proud of you for all that you have overcome. Please let me know when you switch so that I can follow you. You are an inspiration to many. God bless you, my sweet sister!

  4. I am so excited about not just a new chapter…I feel a whole new book is being blogged.
    I feel like I have so much to say at this point…and no one really to tell, so obviously just see it as an outlet to write. 🙂
