Last October, I began my third or fourth “nervous breakdown.” I’ve talked about my nervous breakdowns before.

Several days ago, I was getting myself all riled up because I was worried that I would start falling down into the pit this year as well. Then, a song came onto the radio; it seemed as if God wanted to cheer me up. And tell me that I shouldn’t be worried about the future:

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 be

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…

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” by Danny Gokey

I guess maybe I need to have faith that God will see me through this hard time in my life. He’s done it before and I trust that He will do it again.
