One of my favorite songs right now is, “Tell your heart to beat again.” It was written by one of the members of the group “Phillips, Craig and Dean.” The back story of this song brings even more meaning to the song itself.
A pastor convinced a heart surgeon in his congregation to let him watch an open heart surgery. The pastor watched them roll the sleeping woman into the operating room and watched as the surgeon cut her chest and pulled her heart up to work on it. Once the surgeon was finished he put the heart back in its place and massaged it a little to cause it to start beating again. Nothing. He tried it again. Nothing. They took more drastic measures and the heart still did not beat on its own.
“Finally the surgeon knelt down beside his patient and he took off his surgeon mask and said “Mrs. Johnson, this is your surgeon. The operation went perfectly, your heart has been repaired now tell your heart to beat again.” (Phillips, Craig and Dean). And it did!
Mrs. Johnson had to agree with the truth, that her heart had changed and been repaired. It’s the same for us. We have to agree with the beautiful truths of God’s word–everything He says about us, and we will live a joyful, peaceful life. Take one verse with you today and tell your heart to beat again!
