12. Start Over

Peace Be Still
by Hope Darst


Itís easy to get a little overwhelmed
Nobody plans to break
Itís heavy and itís hard to ask for help
But donít hide behind the pain

Let it all go
Let it all come to an end
We can start over again
Youíre not broken
Thereís just things I wanna mend
We can start over again

Sometimes healing
Looks like nothing you would choose
Feels like youíre in reverse
Iím redeeming all the things you had to lose
But I know it hurts

Let it all go
Let it all come to an end
We can start over again
Youíre not broken
Thereís just things I wanna mend
We can start over again
Oh, we can start over again

You donít have to be afraid Iím right here, Iím right here
You can cry, itís okay
Iím right here, Iím right here

I wonít let go
When it all comes to an end
We can start over again
You can trust me
Itís alright, catch your breath
We can start over again
We can start over again

Behind the Song:
"This is probably the most personal and vulnerable song on the album. We wrote this song when my co-writer Mia Fieldeís, sister, Darna, and myself, were both in really hard seasons of healing. We both love Jesus and didnít want to be in the place we found ourselves in. We both felt broken. While talking with Mia and Ben Cantelon, our other co-writer, I started sharing the process I found myself in and said, ďI have too much history with God bringing deep healing into my life to stop trusting Him now, but I wish I could go back and start over.Ē At that moment the song was born. This song is for every person who has ever found themselves feeling like they are broken or moving backward. When a hard season takes your breath away and comes out of nowhere. When loss and healing are so closely knitted that itís hard to tell if youíre moving forward. Itís written from the narrative of God speaking to us. Reminding us that He doesnít see us as broken, but He does long to repair or heal anything that needs mending. He will return what has been lost and stolen. We are safe with Him. He sees our struggle and pain. He loves us and is with us through it all. He wants to be a part of the journey and even the hardest, most painful moments of our lives...the ones where weíve been wronged or are in the wrong, donít escape His love and redemption. If we allow Him into the process, together we can always start over again." - Hope Darst

Rev 21: 5 (ESV) And he who was seated on the throne said, ďBehold, I am making all things new.Ē

Matthew 11: 28-30 (ESV) ďCome to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.Ē
