Rise Up

I don’t know how broken you are today.

You may be broken financially, thinking you will never last another week—or day!

You may feel your heart has been recently cut or torn deliberately into pieces. Well, I’m glad you are still alive and the fact that you are reading this means you are hoping to get some place better—to be someone better.

It may seem that you have a missing piece in your life. You lost someone special, a friend, a family member, a special someone that seemed to have made you complete for the longest time. Now that they’re gone, you just seem so out of place, disorganized, and out of track most of the time.

Maybe you have done something terrible lately that you just want to run away  to another country or be invisible so that people won’t see you anymore. Like, you just want to be “lost” for a couple of days, weeks, months, or years, until everybody forgets your mistake.

Unfortunately, the sun will rise and the days will pass whether we like it or not. 

We may spend days or years in solitude, but it doesn’t remove the fact that people will continue with their lives and that life is happening outside the imaginary capsule we have placed ourself in. Who loses in such a scenario? Not them. They have moved on from their battles.

Rise up.

As the sun shows up after witnessing the dreadful things happening on this planet, so should you. No matter what your situation is, the sun will always rise. It may not strike its rays on you because you are hiding, but it will always rise.

It means the world will continue with or without you, but it doesn’t mean you don’t matter at all.

Every people you meet from the moment you wake up, unintentionally receives something good or bad from you.  

It’s true that their lives will continue, but HOW they will continue with their lives may be different based on how you have faced them that day. Were you sulky? Cheerful? Down most of the time because you felt deteriorating every second?  

I may have no idea where you are in your life right now, but God does. God is fully aware of what you are going through.

God is fully aware that you have been lost. He did not lose you though, you just left his side or lost yourself somewhere.


Where can we run?
Where can we hide?
Is there a place that we can go
Where you cannot find us?

You’re there when we fall
There when we rise
Nothing is hidden from your face
You know every breath we take

Your love has found us
Your love has found us
We are yours forever
Your love has found us
It’s all around us
Holding us together

Nothing on earth
Above or below
Nothing in all the universe
Can take us from your love

You came to us
Made us your own
You have redeemed us from the fall
You paid the ransom once for all

We will sing because your love has found us
Even in the darkest night
We sing because your love has set us free

-Your Love Has Found Us, Gateway Worship
