    Thank you for this amazing song and the story behind it. Thank you for helping me to see its way past time for me to let go of the past. I cannot step into what the Lord has for me today until I step out of the darkness from the past.

Each day I wake up wishing and praying for ;life as it used to be. This song touches my heart. Thank you for an amazing song. It lifts my spirit and helps me continue to walk in His faith.

    Thank you Danny. I think everyone gets to that point in their life that they have to “will” their heart to beat and take a breath in and out. Life is hard sometimes. Mine was losing my husband of 41 years. We do everything together. He was my best friend. When he died I wanted to just lay down and hold his hand and go with him. But God had other plans. My heart is starting to heal and I have grown closer to God. Depend on Him each day. Thank you for such a beautiful song that ministers to the hurting. God bless you.
