Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.

You’re shattered
Like you’ve never been before.
The life you knew
In a thousand pieces on the floor.

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 any more.
Say goodbye to where you’ve been
And tell your heart to beat again.

( Bernie Herms, Randy Phillips, and Matthew West, 2012)

Today’s Reflection and First Section is written by a dear friend, Davies Balkan.

Reflection. Almighty God loves us so. His grace we seek. God’s love picks us up. God is always nearby. In our times of sadness. In our days of heartache. Almighty God is close by.

Scripture Reading: Trust in Him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to Him,
for God is our refuge. (Psalm 62:8, NIV)

“Have you ever experienced difficult times in life? When you felt like there was no hope left. Have you ever struggled with feelings of loneliness, inadequacy, or fear? In moments like these, we need a shining light of hope. That will guide us through the darkness. And that light is God’s unconditional love that never fails.

Almighty God loves us so much. That we can hardly comprehend it. His grace is endless. And through His love. We can find the strength to overcome any obstacle. It’s easy to get lost in the negative aspects of life and become discouraged. But, when we place our trust in God, everything becomes possible.

No matter how hard life may seem. We can always turn to God’s love to pick us up. His divine hand is always reaching out to us. Waiting for us to accept His love and His grace. Sometimes, we may feel like we don’t deserve it. But that’s when we need it the most.

God’s love is the ultimate healer that can mend any broken heart. It is a powerful force. That transcends all boundaries and uplifts us to a place of peace and joy.

When we accept God’s love. We are transformed. And our lives become full of God Almighty’s purpose and true meaning.

In conclusion, we all need God’s grace, His unceasing love, and God’s free gift of mercy.

It is through His love that we find the courage to keep moving forward. So when you find yourself struggling. Remember God’s love is always there. Waiting to lift you up. Allow Him to wrap His arms around you. And fill your heart with the peace and the comfort that only Almighty God can provide.”

Dedication to Davies Balkan: Davies is a special and such a dear friend. He is a devoted and a dedicated child of God Almighty. Davies serves our Heavenly Father every day of his life. By caring for the needs of others. Above the needs of himself — ALWAYS. Davies’ love for our Heavenly Father speaks through every word above. I pray you are touched by his words. As am I.

It is ever so sad. Yet! So true! Each dedicated and every devoted believer. Has times where we are broken into a thousand pieces. We all have moments when we are forced to our knees.

Scripture Reading: For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in Heaven and on Earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith — that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, … (Ephesians 3:14–21 ESV)

When life once more breaks our tender and gentle hearts. These are the very times we reach up to God Almighty. Our Father God tells our hearts to beat again. For Him. For God Alone. Our hearts beat. Once more for the love of our Heavenly Father. Our hearts beat. The fears. The heartache. The sadness of this life take back stage. God’s love brightens our days. God’s peace fills our hearts with His warmth and such tender gladness.

The days of heartache which face us in the future. We fear not. We are armed with the Holy Word of God. Each morning we reach for the Holy Word of God. We meditate of God’s Word. You and I memorize suitable Bible texts. These priceless Bible verses are used in times of despair. These beloved Bible texts are used against the forces of darkness. These memorized verses see the devil flee before us. Such power does the Word of God hold. Such power and such love does the Holy Word of God hold. No fear in life do we have. When having the Holy Word of God in our hearts. No fear have we.

Scripture Reading: Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10, NKJV)

Such love for each of His children does our Heavenly Father hold. Such strength and such comfort God’s love provides. God’s peace is gained through reading His Holy Word. The forces of darkness are defeated by memorising the Hoy Word of God. Times of heartache and days of sadness are faced head on. Believing. Always. Believing God’s Holy Word gives us the wisdom and the strength needed to carry on.

We are loved by a God whose promises are always fulfilled. Almighty God promises we are never alone.

Scripture Reading: It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8, ESV)

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6 ESV)

No matter what comes our way. No matter what people say about us. No matter how hard life may be. We do not battle life alone. We are never alone. We have God Almighty fighting in the trenches along side us.

Also, in our days of happiness. We wish to share our joy and our gladness with our Heavenly Father. We know deep in our hearts. God Almighty wants us to be happy in and with Him — Always.
