Rise Up!

It’s when joy dissolves into frustration and simple happiness into worry. When the fears of this world seem larger than the hands that created it and words of love and truth give way to bickering ….
When my mind clouds over and I shake to find my breath. When the knotting starts and it’s a fight for air…
It’s me in a crowded room yet alone and unheard, standing invisible on weak legs. It’s the enemy who invades my sleep and sends me falling, reaching for a light in the darkness…
And when I shake my head and shout ENOUGH, my soul cries,
Rise Up!
In the name of Jesus, rise up to the enemy who taunts and whose only mission is to hurt and cast guilt and shame.

Rise Up!
By the blood of the lamb, rise up in His strength and remember who you are! Your validation does not lie in the hands of man, but in the heart of your Creator! He has prepared a place for you.
Rise Up!
Hallelujah to the Savior! When you’ve given enough days over to the things that are not of Him, rise up and speak His name. Rise up and give glory and praise to the One who continues to hold you through it all.
Rise Up!
Yes, today, even now, especially now rise up against it all because you’re worth fighting for. You will never embarrass or disappoint the Father when you seek Him with all your heart…so, rise up in His name!
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
    let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!” 
(1 Chron. 16:31) NIV

Rise up and be joyful!

  1. Debbie: I have read this twice now. Each time I find myself singing, "Rise up,O men of God. Have done with lesser things." Thank you for the reminder.

  2. Rise up! Yes! I have, like you said, given enough days over to the things that are not of Him! Today, especially RIGHT NOW (in the middle of typing out an outline for Him - and I "accidentally" clicked from something I was trying to look for on my blog, to your post - perfect timing!), I am doing just as you say!

    Like a taking a deep breath! Ok, I'm ready to really get back to work now! Thank you Debbie!
