Hawk Nelson - Every Beat Of My Broken Heart Lyrics

This is not what I asked
Not what I prayed for
Are you listening now?
'Cause all that I've built,
All that I've bled for
Is coming undone

But what if it had to be broken
Before my heart could be open?

Maybe the shattered parts
Are the places where Your love starts
And now I am closer to where You are
With every beat of my broken heart
Oh, oh

Maybe it's not what i would've chosen
And I won't understand
But I'm trusting You now
Cause all that I know is
I am safe in Your hands

But what if it had to be broken
Before my heart could be open?

Maybe the shattered parts
Are the places where Your love starts
And now I am closer to where You are
With every beat of my broken heart
Mercy is here with me
Even if I can't see it now
I am closer to where You are
With every beat of my broken heart

So break me all the way
'Til we are face to face
When Your work in me is through
Then all that's left is You

Maybe the shattered parts
Are the places where You're love starts
And now I am closer to where You are
With every beat of my broken heart

Mercy is here with me
Even if I can't see it now
I am closer to where You are
With every beat of my broken heart
Oh, oh

I am closer to where You are
With every beat of my broken
Beat of my broken heart

  4. Johnny Lima

    This song helped me understand God's plan when I was going through some difficult times. I needed to be broken in order for him to finish the work in me... It's an ongoing process.

    You + God = 100% As long as there is life, there is hope. It's not over until He says it is. Praying for you.

    The mountaintop, while the destination for all of us, is a barren place, where little, if anything, grows. It's temperatures are often extreme and life-threatening. The air is thin where the altitude is the highest,making it difficult to catch your breath. It is like encountering God for the first time. It is breathtakingly beautiful and extreme, demanding 100% of your will to reach, and if you're not prepared, it can threaten your very life. While we look on with expectation of reaching the goal of the mountaintop, we must not hold disdain for the valley. We must remember the purpose of the mountaintop in history and warfare. It was not only to claim victory, but also to have the advantage in battle. In the valley is where we grow because that is where growth happens in the world. The valley is temperate and protected, with occasional destruction and regrowth. We must remember the purpose of the valley and keep contentment in our hearts as we move through the storms, keeping our eyes on Jesus. We need to be journeying through the valley, a nomad passing through, tent dwellers only there for a short time. We don't need to set stakes down in the valley and accept the suffering eternally. We are growing in the valley, but we are also the most vulnerable, and therefore must keep moving towards our destination lest we be overcome by our enemies. Be prepared to defend your position both in the valley AND on the mountaintop because as long as there is life, there is a battle for your soul. We don't have to wander aimlessly in a paper bag when we have the scissors (Jesus) and the compass (God's Word). Take heart, have faith, and lean not on your understanding of things. God knows what He's doing.

    One time I was driving my kids home, and I took a different way. My oldest got anxious and said to me, "Mom! You're going the wrong way!" The way we normally go was blocked by an accident, but he didn't see that. I told him, "Trust me, son. I know where I'm going." When we got to a familiar place, he said, "Oh, I know where we are!" And God spoke to me and said, "It is the same with you. Trust me. I know where we are going."

    Not a devotional... I wrote this and hope it helps. Feel free to share.

  11. Caterina Allen

    After seven years of being with my husband and having a beautiful three year old boy, I believe my marriage is coming to an end. I love my husband more than he will ever know. My heart is shattered but I also know that God has told me that he will heal my heart and that its okay to let go because he'll catch me.

    Lucy Gaid

    family lowe

    From a once young woman myself, God is setting you up for something better. God never takes something away that is good for us without getting something better for us. One day, you'll look back and smile at this. Trust me.

    living this right now, sometimes the only way to god is when we are heartbroken and feel worthless but, that's when he comes to lift us up and we find ourselves close to him. Leaving our pain at his feet.
