One Word, One Prayer #19

Where do I start for this One Word, One Prayer post? I had such a GREAT weekend!!! I went to an Insta meet up and met other business owners and bloggers! I had such a GREAT time and was on such a high once I came home. I have lots of great post ideas in the works and other bloggers that I would like to work with! Then, I went to church on Sunday forgetting that there was a BIG NAME leading worship this week. The sermon was AMAZING and the worship was OUT OF THIS WORLD! So, the BIG NAME asked everyone to have a seat and sang one of his songs for us. As, I read the word on the screen I began to cry. The lyrics are as follows:

“Tell Your Heart To Beat Again”

By: Danny Gokey

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

Danny’s story is heartbreaking. He lost his wife in surgery  just a few short months before trying out for American Idol. I did not loss anyone to death but I went though a really hard patch in my life about 7 years ago. I share this story to try to help and reach people out there knowing they are not alone. I had met the man who I thought was the man of my dreams. After getting married and being married for a year he decided that we should legally separate which in turn became a divorce. I was so crushed and broken at that time in my life.  Looking back I view this event as a speed bump in my life in which made me who I am today.

I LOVE the man I with now and know that a relationship takes work. This song spoke so strongly to me because this is exactly how I felt after the divorce. I had to remind myself that I was starting a new beginning. I have also had a few friends that recently have been going though hard times. They are speed bumps in the journey of life. Even though you can never forget what has happened you have to “step into the light of grace.” This week I will be praying and thinking about the word BEGINNING. I pray for all the people that are starting over and getting over their speed bumps in life. God is great and will move in your life in great and amazing ways.

Love and Peace
