Yesterday’s a closing door, you don’t live here anymore

I’m back again with more song lyrics that I hope touch your heart like they have mine. This song speaks of the journeying we’ve done together. It talks about the kind of pain that hits you like a blow to the head and you don’t think you can go on. This pain, this pain drops you to your knees and you don’t know which way to turn.

I’ve felt this pain and you have too.

This is a song by Danny Gokey, listen to the song lyrics and focus on the strength and grace God wants to give to us.

Shattered, like you’ve never been before
The life you knew
In a thousand pieces on the floor
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

(Chorus)
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 and take step one
Leave the darkness feel the sun
Cause your story’s far from over
And your journey’s just begun

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

And tell your heart to beat again
Your heart to beat again, beat again
Oh, so tell your heart to beat again

 Do you see and feel the hope? In this moment, God wants you to see the hope you have in him when you believe.

Consider these verses in Psalms and Ephesians:

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. Psalm 34:18 NLT

I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called – his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. Ephesians 1:18 NLT
