Tell your heart to beat again (a song) and my thoughts this morning…

download (1)
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
This morning while I was taking my morning walk/run I had so much on my mind. Most of my thoughts were about relationships I have in my life and sometimes the lack of them. I find myself continually grasping for relationships that “I” want to stay in my life. I don’t want to mess them up you know? I have always felt like a failure when it came to relationships except for the one I have with my husband. He is my best friend and has always been here for me through thick and thin, the good, the bad, the ugly… but even he isn’t guaranteed to last. Of course in our heart of hearts we want to always be together and live to be 110 years old. However, the chances of that are hmmmm. Miracles do happen though..My point is as I was listening to the song above and allowing the words to sink into my soul. I realized that Jesus is the friend that sticks closer than a brother. My relationship with Him is where my everything lies. He is always going to be here. He is my Guarantee, He is my Hope, He is my Love, He is my Joy, He is Everlasting, He is Solid. When I listen to music with lyrics of Hope it inspires me to remember Him. I was looking up at the sky and becoming solely aware of nature and my surroundings. I was aware of a little bird that kept creeping and then flying down the edge of a fence that I was running beside. The dark gray clouds that were puffy hanging in the sky. The bright sun that would sneak out from behind them making me hot with sweat and then hide again cooling me off. The trees that were dark green with life surrounding me. A flock of birds flying freely by me and above me. And even though my morning consisted of feeling hopeless when it comes to keeping some of my relationships alive I realized I am alive because of only One of them. And I have to say because of that and the reflections that I had in my heart… my morning became one of most blissful peace. I can’t fix anything, I can’t grasp at anything. All I can do is rest in my everything and His Name is Jesus. And that makes me thankful. A quote to share…..”A little faith will bring your soul to Heaven; a great faith will bring Heaven to your soul.” (Charles Spurgeon). Below is a link to the Youtube video for this song. You will be blessed if you watch it.
