I am in love with this song at the moment, it is called Wake up and it is by All Sons and Daughters.
The words of the song say that even though we have gone through so much pain and feel so much shame we are still breathing, we still get another day to try again. Despite our pain we can still see the hope of the Lord. That hope rises within in us as we draw closer to God and His light begins to shine through.
As our hope begins to rise up, we begin to wake up, stand up and pick up our cross and carry it on. We stand before God and say our hearts are yours Lord, not our will but yours be done Lord.
I hope that you feel encouraged and inspired after this series on rising up. Remember that the Spirit of the Lord is with you, He will go before you and you need not be afraid. Rise up and follow the call of God on your life, you will never regret it.
