Tell Your Heart To Beat Again

February 29, 2020—

When the stresses of life threaten to overwhelm us and our fears and failures weigh us down, God is the firm foundation on which to rest. Today’s song by Danny Gokey embodies His peace and forgiveness for us: “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.”

Tell your heart to beat again

Close your eyes and breathe it in

Let the shadows fall away

Step into the light of grace

As we continue in this season of Lent, let us entrust our sins and failures to God, trusting in His eternal grace and forgiveness to make us new again.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

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 is 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 is 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 is a closing door
You don't live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you've been
Tell your heart to beat again
Your heart to beat again
Beat again
Oh, so tell your heart to beat again

Masterpiece

January 25, 2020—

Rarely do we glimpse what God has planned for us, but we trust that He knows every step of the road ahead. Today’s song of the day by Danny Gokey, “Masterpiece,” reminds us that every moment in our lives shapes us as God intended us to be.

You’re making a masterpiece

You’re shaping the soul in me

You’re moving where I can’t see

And all I am is in Your hands

Today, let us pray for the strength and courage to trust in God’s plan and follow Him throughout our lives—He knows the path we tread because He designed it Himself.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Heartbreak's a bitter sound
Know it well, it's ringing in my ears
And I can't understand
Why I'm not fixed by now
Begged and I've pleaded, "Take this pain"
But I'm still bleeding
Heart trusts you for certain
Head says it's not working
I'm stuck here still hurting
But You tell me...

You're making a masterpiece
You're shaping the soul in me
You're moving where I can't see
And all I am is in Your hands
You're taking me all apart
Like it was Your plan from the start
To finish Your work of art for all to see
You're making a masterpiece

Guess I'm your canvas
Beautiful, black and blue, painted in mercy's hue
I don't see past this
But You see me now, who I'll be then
There at the end, standing there as...

Your masterpiece
You're shaping the soul in me
You're moving where I can't see
And all I am is in Your hands
You're taking me all apart
Like it was Your plan from the start
To finish Your work of art for all to see
You're making a masterpiece
You're making a masterpiece

Even though I'm hurting
I'll let You keep working

You're making a masterpiece
You're shaping the soul in me
You're moving where I can't see
And all I am is in Your hands
You're taking me all apart
Like it was Your plan from the start
To finish Your work of art for all to see
You're making a masterpiece
You're making a masterpiece

I'll be Your masterpiece
