DEEP WATERS

I woke from a dream. In it, I was singing, and praising God, as my spirit cried out for holiness. For He says, “When you PASS through the waters, I will BE with YOU.” This is so important to remember.

This song came across my FB page today…

“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
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 beTell 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 is such a powerful song, by Danny Gokey. The very first time I heard it, was so powerful. I was with a dear sister, who is really enduring a lot. She and her little angels, were out and about. We were about to go inside, for lunch. But God intervened. A song came on, and before he sang, the music drew me. she said, “Well, let’s listen.” So, we did. We both wept. It was such a piece of Heaven on earth.

After the song was over, I found myself still struggling with it. Only NOW, days later, am I able to receive what it says and means. Because, the first time, I need to be honest. I just thought, “I don’t want to!!!!!” Not just like a screaming 2 year old. But, from the depths of my soul. I realized that I was asking God to give me a reason to BE.

Have you ever felt that way? Like NOTHING in the natural is how it should be? Because, I was there. Separated from everything, but GOD. I was at the door of the prison, ready to walk OUT. The doors were OPEN. But, I was so used to the pain, the hurt, the darkness. I had lived THERE for so LONG. I was always with Jesus. But, I was THERE, in the dark hidden away.

The problem is, in that cavernous place, the GOOD cannot stay. It requires coming out of the DARK places, to experience MORE of the GLORY of God. For it is formed within the darkness. But, eventually, it is BIRTHED into the LIGHT.

Eventually WE must take the hand of JESUS, and WALK OUT and AWAY from the darkness. It does not mean, He will never send us to be of rescue. It means, WE will not be PART of the DARK. Yesterday, I did my best to explain something. Someone was sharing their intrigue with a certain book and movie series. My response was simple. “I don’t go there anymore. I do NOT fault those who do. I simply know, that I cannot.” I stay in the LIGHT with Jesus. It is where my HOME IS. It is where it is SAFE. And, Because HIS LOVE keeps growing, IT is the palace of Victory.

More insight on the scripture, “When you PASS through the waters, I will BE with YOU.” It is not just literal water. Sometimes it is. BUT, it also refers to the water of LIFE, and Death. For, we are ALL dying. Only He knows when our last day, on earth will be. But, anyone can DIE for HIM. He wants us to LIVE for and WITH Him. Can everyone do that? They CAN, but WILL they? According to the word of God, the answer is no, not ALL will. But, I know that I will, and our family will. I know this, because, our test in LIFE and our destiny is every breathe with and for Jesus.
