Danny Gokey: Tell your Heart to Beat Again

I was well seated in front of my 15 inches Laptop Screen watching the video as he was invited in front of a “not-too-big” audience to perform a hit song he released on his album “HOPE IN FRONT OF ME”. The title, “Tell your Heart to beat again”, alone stirred my interest to download the video from Youtube, and it was worth the megabyte spent.

He stood amid the standing ovation, elegantly dressed as musical guru; well composed. He grabbed the microphone as the instrumentals keep modulating the pitch of the music. The melody oozed with a heavenly appeal. I was captivated by this sound when he let out the first line, “You're shattered like you've never been before”. With a keen interest, I listened while he continued “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”. It was then I knew this wasn’t just a song but God speaking to my soul.

I was still meditating on those aforementioned line as the chorus came rushing, “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 and you don't live there anymore... Say goodbye to where you've been and tell your heart to beat again….” Now, I am convinced as I whispered to my hearing, “I hear you Lord”.

He is Daniel Jay "Danny" Gokey. An American singer and former church music director from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

You see, the content of the song so deeply resonated with my condition that I had no doubt God was speaking to me and to whosoever cares to listen to this heavenly song. Yea, I have been there. There was a time in my life when the zeal was overflowing. When the glory was so aglow. I thought I could remind there forever, but a storm was awaiting my arrival in time. When the storm finally hit, I took solace in pitying myself even as I was spiritually dying. I thought I couldn’t get back to where I use to be. But I was so wrong.

So wrong of me to dwell on the bigness of my problem instead of seeking for peace on the bigness of my God. I should have been wiser, but thank God I am.

I know you have been there too. At a point you lost all focus and direction. Everything you’ve dreamt to be possible seems so impossible. My dear, you are not alone. But, you have to understand that trial and temptation are part of the instrument God uses to sharpen us into able workman, equipped with the necessary skills and quality to fulfill our purposes on Earth. You have to understand that “God is faithful; He will not suffer you to be tempted beyond that which ye are able to bear, but with the temptation will also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it”. I didn’t write the last words on quote, God did in 1 CORINTHIANS 10:13.
He is true to His words. So, let this be your confidence as you go through the huddle in your journey to fulfilling purpose. God bless.

I am Raphael Nweke, and I just want to make you better.
