Heart... Beat... Again...

From time to time, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) I mention things that touch my heart.  That's what I'm doing, today.

On Facebook (FB), someone I know and love posted a song that truly touched my heart.  She had shared it with another person I know and love, in an effort to lift her up and encourage her.

Thank you, my dear...   May God bless you...

The song is sung by Danny Gokey and is entitled, Tell Your Heart To Beat Again.  Here is the link for you to listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azYK8I2uoog&feature=youtu.be.  The lyrics are below.

Tell Your Heart To Beat Again

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 seems further 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


These lyrics truly touched my heart. 

Not just because they are encouragement, for a person to move on... after being hurt.  After having  life hurt so badly that it feels like it's fallen apart.

But, also because it tells us to not just have our heart beat again, but to 'step into the light of grace'.

Grace... is so very important.  And, it is given to us, by God.

Yes, we are saved by grace (alone), through faith (alone), in Christ (alone).  Yes, it is a gift from God.

However, for those of us who are already saved by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, we do not always have perfect lives.  There are times when we suffer, going through trials in life.

It is then, when we must look to God for grace.

Just as we read, in Hebrews 4:16, "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

Yes, you who are suffering, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Look to our Lord!

Again, I will ask for prayer for the person suffering.  She, whose life has fallen apart, due to suffering tragedy.  And, needs to obtain mercy and grace.

Thank you, my friend, for praying for the person suffering.  May God answer your prayer.

May God bless you...


Until next time...
