Rise Up!

Updated: Mar 12, 2021

Written October 29, 2020

No matter how many times life knocks you down

Get up with more ganas and get rid of that frown

Setbacks are a bump on the journey that will not last

As long as you learn and make them a thing of the past

Life issues grab you and pull you deep into the ground

Making you stuck in your darkness with no one around

Only you really know the innermost thoughts in your head

You hear it over and over - even words that were not said

Want More and Selfish were right next to me

Good character is corrupted by bad company

Alcohol and ambition tried to make an ash out of Gee

But like the phoenix from ashes, he stepped out of that tree

Stronger than ever I am able to tell my story

Now my life is not about me, it’s all for His glory

Jesus pulled me out of the darkness and into His light

Making it easy to walk because His Word is so bright

The best choice I made was a life commitment to Him

Now I have love, peace and joy while wearing my brim

Rise up and ask Him to show you the Way

He’ll carry you forward into Peace on your final day

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,

and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.” Isaiah 60:1
